Microwaved Fried Rice
I discovered a wonderful new Microwave Fried Rice recipe this week. It came from the Taste Of Home site and it’s super quick, easy and delicious. The original author of this recipe is Merrill Powers from Spearville, Kansas.
I made quite a few changes to the ingredient list to suit the tastes of my family. However, I followed the preparation instructions to the letter.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium carrot, shredded
1/2 cup onions, chopped
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
2 cups water
1 cup uncooked long grain rice
1 tablespoon onion soup or chicken soup mix ( I used one individual serving package of onion soup mix)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
3/4 cup frozen peas, thawed
In a medium, microwave safe dish, combine the olive oil, shredded carrot and chopped onion. Cover. Cook for 2-3 minutes on high.
Add water, rice, garlic powder and soup mix. Stir well. Cover and cook for 9 minutes on high. Stir and cover. Cook for another 1-3 minutes on high.
Add the soy sauce and frozen peas. Let stand 5 minutes and serve.
