COOKING WITH NEWBIES: How To Cook An Easy Fried Rice Recipe
This newbie learned how to make fried rice, but also how to prep ingredients and safely use a knife.
Mornings are always¬†better when you have¬†just¬†eaten¬†a great meal and fried rice is always a great addition to any morning spread. You may pair it with your longganisa, tapa, or¬†tocino¬†and it can be¬†as basic as you want. You can also toast¬†garlic¬†and then toss this mixture of¬†aromatic¬†chunks in leftover rice¬†for delicious garlic rice.¬†
However, it's a great idea to¬†also learn how to upgrade¬†this simple recipe.¬†This is what our newbie cook learned on the latest episode of Cooking With Newbies.¬†
Our latest episode brings newbie cook Karen de Vera, freelance writer and event host, to our kitchen to learn how to make a delicious fried rice recipe from our expert Yummy.ph¬†recipe developer and contributor Marie Balbuena.¬†
The¬†fried rice recipe¬†has a few ingredient additions beyond a basic garlic rice recipe. It's also a recipe that, if desired, can easily be tweaked to not only include other¬†ingredients but¬†you can also make substitutions if there's an ingredient you don't have on hand.
No chorizo? Use ham or hotdogs! Leave out the mixed vegetables if you're not a fan of the mix, and use another vegetable.¬†Sesame oil is fantastic, and we highly recommend you don't omit it but you can use leftover adobo or bistek sauce from our¬†last cooking episode if you have some. You¬†can even use a mix of different meats, add chopped kangkong leaves, or even add more garlic.¬†
Whether you're not a breakfast person or not, learning to cook a fried rice recipe is a fantastic basic cooking¬†skill that¬†you will be able to use for any time of the day. After all, very few Pinoy meals are complete without¬†rice and any leftover rice can be transformed into fried rice like¬†this one.
