Ginger, Sprouts & Corn Fried Rice

“Once upon a time

There was rice, brown & old,
And 3 friends cunning
Corn, Sprouts and Ginger gold.
Bored in the refrigerator
They jumped into the bowl,
Where Mr Rice lay quiet
Searching his soul.
In jumped the Onions
And Oils from nearby,
To save the Mr Rice
And his oh-so-loud cry!
Curses and fights
They punched and cried,
But no one could prevent
Mr Rice from getting fried.
After hours of chaos
Friends they became not,
But they did devise this famous
Dish in a pot.” 


½ cup brown rice, boiled
2 tablespoons onions, finely chopped
2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated
2 tablespoons lentil sprouts (green lentils)
2 tablespoons corn kernels
2 teaspoons, light soy sauce
1 teaspoon olive oil
½ teaspoon sesame oil
½ teaspoon chili oil (or olive oil infused with fresh chilies)
Salt to taste
Heat olive oil in a pan. Add the ginger and onions and sauté till the onions turn transparent and start to brown. Mix in the sprouts and corn and sauté for another minute. Now add the rice, soy sauce, sesame oil, chili oil and salt. Stir on high flame for a few minutes till the rice is well coated with the soy. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
If you’re a fan, break an egg on top or serve with a side of friend or scrambled eggs.
A great way to use left over boiled rice!
