Louisa Clements

Prep Time15 minutes
Cook Time10 minutes
Total Time25 minutes
Servings 4

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp minced ginger
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes
  • 1 lb asparagus, tough ends trimmed, asparagus thinly sliced
  • 4 cups cooked white rice, or 1 cup, uncooked rice cooked to package directions
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce, or Tamari for gluten free
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas

Instructions

  • Heat a large frying pan or wok over medium-high heat. Add canola oil and onion. Cook, stirring frequently for 2 minutes. Add garlic, ginger, chili flakes and salt. Cook until fragrant, another 2 minutes.
  • Add thinly sliced asparagus and cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly, until asparagus is bright green and starting to get tender.
  • Add rice and cook for two minutes. Allow grains of rice to toast slightly and become lightly golden. Create a well in the rice big enough to scramble the eggs. Crack the eggs into the well, and scramble until cooked, 1-2 minutes. Add peas and stir to distribute eggs and peas into the rice.
  • Add soy sauce and sesame oil, stirring to coat every grain of rice. Serve.
