Chili Garlic Fried Rice

I hardly eat rice now and when I do, I make sure I make this fried rice recipe.

When I created this recipe, Benihana Restaurant’s fried rice was my inspiration because I just love their fried rice… I mean who doesn’t.

With my version, I just added chili garlic sauce because I want it a bit spicy and I also made it a bit guilt-free without sacrificing the Benihana flavors too much.

This fried rice is very addicting so make sure to watch how much you eat because you can easily eat tons of it…

Ingredients:

  • cook 4 cups of white rice and set aside
  • 7 eggs ( 3 whole ones & 4 egg whites only)
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp organic butter
  • diced onions, half of medium size
  • 3 cloves chopped garlic, or if you have roasted garlic then use that instead
  • half a cup diced carrots
  • 1 cup frozen roasted corn
  • 1 Tbsp chili garlic sauce (may get from Asian section or grocery stores)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp onion powder
  • 5 Tbsp liquid aminos
  • roughly chopped cooked & crispy turkey bacon

Instructions:

  1. Cook the scrambled eggs separately and set aside
  2. On a medium to high heat, combine olive oil and butter in a big wok
  3. Add in the chopped garlic, onions & cook until onions are translucent
  4. Add in the carrots and cook for about 2-3 minutes
  5. Add in the corn and cook for another 3 minutes
  6. Add in chili garlic sauce, salt, pepper, garlic & onion powder then mix until well combined
  7. Add in all the cooked rice
  8. Again, add same amount of pepper, garlic & onion powder
  9. Add in the liquid aminos
  10. Mix until well combined & keep mixing for about 3-5 minutes
  11. Optional: if you have roasted garlic, then add it in 
  12. Add in the cooked eggs & keep mixing
  13. Add in the turkey bacon & keep mixing for another 5 minutes until all are well combined
  14. Turn off the stove and serve in small bowls
  15. Enjoy

Tips: 

  • The level of spiciness of this recipe is just between mild to medium.  You may adjust the spiciness by adding more or less of the chili garlic sauce
  • Other than turkey bacon, you may use any type of cooked meat to mix in
