Fried Rice

I've been working on this recipe for awhile through trial and error.  Now, I've never actually eaten fried rice so that may be my initial down fall.  This is what I imagine it should be like and I'm pretty happy with the results.  It's really a combination of a few different ideas.

This is an assortment of ingredients I had in my fridge that I though would work well in this recipe.  The main thing you will need is gluten free soy sauce - the is the base of the sauce.  Plus I think minced ginger is nice for any asian recipe.  I also used minced garlic, chile oil, some spice szechuan sauce I found, pineapple juice, and siracha of course.  

Cook up some rice according to the package directions.  I made a double batch.

While the rice is cooking - saute 1 package of diced onions (from trader joes), one package of mirepoix (pictured here), once it's all cooked through - toss in some frozen peas.  Then you want to make your sauce using all of the above ingredients - start with about a 1/3 cup gluten free soy sauce and 1/2 a can of pineapple juice - then add a teaspoon or so of minced ginger and another of minced garlic.  Add as much spicy sauce as you want.  Then add in some cashews or peanuts for texture.  

In a separate pan - scramble two or three eggs and cook thoroughly.  It just works better to do this completely separate.  I tried doing this in with the veggies the first time and it made a huge mess.  

Once the rice is done to your liking - add the sauce/veggie mixture.  Then fold in the scrambled eggs.  If the mixture seems dry - add in equal parts pineapple juice and soy sauce until it seems right.  Then add more siracha until it is as spicy as you wish!

I hope you enjoy!

If this is nothing like fried rice, I apologize :)
