I can’t take credit for tonight’s dinner all on my own. Thanks to the help of my wonderful husband, I am digging into a delicious Asian inspired rice bowl.
In addition to being wonderful in many ways, Joe is also an excellent cook. He hasn’t been cooking all that much lately due to stress from school and work and the fact that I’m home a lot more so I take care of most meals.
However, now that he has completed his MBA program, he’s had a little more flexibility.
Tonight Joe made some delicious fried rice and it paired very well with some simple baked tofu.
(yes, on a pile of books)
Joe starts out his rice by sautéing some diced onion (or scallion) and red pepper in some veg oil and a little butter. After they soften he adds sliced mushrooms and frozen peas at the end.
Once they are done he puts them to the side and adds 2-3 beaten eggs.
After the eggs solidify a bit, he scrambles them with the rest of the veggies.
He then adds cooked brown rice to the pan, and a swirl of soy sauce
Mix all together, and voila!
You could easily add shrimp, more veggies, chicken, or whatever you want to this really easy and tasty dish!
Do you have any men in your life who enjoy cooking?
