So the other day I made a big pot of rice for my wife and I to have with the stir fry she made us for dinner. The problem was: what to do with the leftover rice the next day. Then it hit me... being Filipino, I went with a simple recipe that we (Filipinos) are taught at some point in our lives Garlic Fried Rice!!! Yummy yummy yummies for our tummies
Leftover steamed white rice (I used about 2 cups
I started off by heating about 2 tbsp of EVOO in a non-stick pan.
Next I dropped in about 1.5 tbsp minced garlic (I was kinda lazy so I used some Spice World pre-minced garlic from the grocery store) and sauteed it til it was a nice golden brown. Since the rice was from the night before, it was cold and compacted together so I had to separate it as best I could (a wooden spoon works great).
After that, I added the rice to my oil and sautéed garlic mixture and mixed it all together. Using salt and pepper, I seasoned to taste while continuing to mix for about 7-10 minutes
YIPPEE!!! Filipino Garlic Fried Rice
It's best with ham (I like Spam better) and eggs as a breakfast combo
