Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons ginger powder
  • 1 tablespoon muscovado, rapadura, or coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cups white rice cold and cooked
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2  eggs
  • .5 cup peas
  • .5 cup carrots chopped

Instructions

To make the spice mix:

  1. Mix all ingredients well and store in the pantry in a sealed container.

To use the spice mix:

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large wok over high heat. Add 2 cups cold, cooked, white rice. Saute, stirring occasionally, until the rice begins to crisp.
  2. Add 2 teaspoons seasoning mix and 1 tablespoon soy sauce. Mix well.
  3. Push the rice to the side of the wok and crack 2 eggs into the free space. Scramble the eggs and saute until cooked through.
  4. Stir the eggs into the rice.
  5. Mix in 1/2 cup peas or chopped carrots and 1/2 cooked, diced meat, if desired. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

If you prefer not to use granulated sugars, omit the sugar in the seasoning mix and add 1/2 tsp raw honey when you cook your stir fry.

Be sure to check the ingredients list on your soy sauce! While traditional soy sauce meets the unprocessed requirements, many brands sneak preservatives and other ingredients into their sauces. Also, Tamari is a great gluten-free option.
