Hi, I'm Stephanie Gallagher for About.com, and today, we're making vegetable fried rice from our Chinese Food site.

Ingredients for Vegetable Fried Rice

For this recipe, you will need:
  • 2 Tbsp. oil for stir-frying
  • 1 tsp. minced fresh ginger - you can find pre-minced fresh ginger usually in the produce section of your supermarket near the minced garlic or you can just take fresh ginger and mince it yourself
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn, peas or a combination of both
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 3-1/2 cups cooked scented rice - scented rice is long-grain jasmine rice
  • 2 tsp. soy sauce - or more or less to tasteblack pepper, to taste
  • 3/4 cup cashews
  • 1 green onion, chopped

Instructions for Making Vegetable Fried Rice

Heat the oil in a wok and swirl to coat the wok. Add the fresh ginger and stir fry until fragrant, about 30 seconds.Add the onions and stir fry for about 2 minutes, until they become light golden in color.Push the onions to the side, and add the frozen peas and/or corn. Stir-fry for a minute or so, and push them to the side. Now add the red peppers in the middle of the wok, and stir fry for 1 minute.Push to the sides, and add the rice to the wok. Stir-fry it a bit, then gradually incorporate the vegetables into the rice. There's no real need to stir fry the rice by itself much more than a minute because it's already cooked. It just needs to be heated through.Now add the soy sauce, stir that in. And add some freshly-ground black pepper, and stir that in. Add the cashews and finally the green onions. And stir fry just to incorporate them.Serve the vegetable fried rice immediately.
