EGG RICE

Do you have leftover rice on hand and are not sure what to do with it? One option is using it to make fried rice. For me though, I use it to make one of my absolute favorite ‘lazy man’ dishes called egg rice that takes less than 10 minutes to put together.  It’s a very simple dish and I hope that you will love it as much as I do. This is one of my ‘comfort foods’.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 finely chopped pimento
  • 1 finely chopped hot pepper (or as you like)
  • 2 cloves grated garlic
  • 3 eggs
  • JGM Products all purpose seasoning (as needed)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Whisk eggs in a bowl.
  2. Heat oil in pan on medium heat.
  3. Sauté onions, garlic, hot pepper, pimento.
  4. Add eggs and cook until they are almost fully cooked.
  5. Add the cooked rice and mix well.
  6. Cook until the eggs are all fully cooked through.
  7. Taste and adjust the salt level by adding some of the all purpose seasoning.
  8. TIME TO EAT! 🙂

NOTE:

  • Although measurements were provided, this recipe can be adjusted to your liking. I personally love to include a lot of hot pepper when I am making it. The idea of hot rice and hot pepper is perfection for me. 
  • You can also include vegetables if you like such as tomatoes mushrooms or even Sweet peppers but I prefer to keep it simple with the onions only as the star of the dish apart from the eggs.
  • The all purpose seasoning contains salt so be mindful of this when adding it to the pan since the cooked rice will more than likely already have salt in it.
