We don't share many recipes on the ol' blog, so I thought I'd post about one of our favorite standby meals: Sticky Rice. It's sort of a bastardized cross between fried rice and stir fry and we like to think it's Asian cuisine. At any rate, it's delicious and we eat it at least once a week. Sticky Rice makes great leftovers and is extra good for breakfast with a fried egg on top. To cook it:
- Make a bunch of rice. We have a rice cooker, so this is quick and easy.
- Chop up garlic and onions and heat them with some peanut and sesame oil in a heavy pan.
- Add whatever vegetables you have on hand. Since we're at the height of harvest season we had all kinds of stuff in it tonight. During the winter, it features lots of cabbage, carrots, and frozen corn.
- Cook up the vegetables however you like them and then throw in the rice.
- Stir it all up, and add some soy sauce.
- Beat an egg or two, depending on how much food you made, and pour it all over. Let it cook on the hot food for a bit, and then stir everything around and let it all cook for a couple more minutes.
- Eat it. Add a little more soy sauce on top if you like, or, if you're Kelly, add a bottle and a half of hot sauce.
