Yangzhou Fried Rice

Chinese people love fried rice. In china, there is a great variety of fried rice, which vary according to their region of production, ingredients, flavor, etc. Yangzhou Fried Rice is perhaps the most well-known one. I’m so obsessed with it. It’s very fresh and delicious. The rice in it is soft and savory. The color and taste make it really moreish!

The basic ingredients are really simple to prepare: cooked rice, eggs, scallions, fresh vegetables such as carrots, peas, and corn. You have choices to add shrimp, ham, or other vegetables to make the dish healthier and taste better.

    Nice. No soy sauce, light or dark? No sesame oil? This is still tasty, I’m sure!

    In hispanic culture we make rice similar to this but without seafood and eggs. We do use scallions though. Rice with peas is essential and the best stuff to eat in the holidays!
