Dirty Fried Rice

Last nite I made a dish that I called "Dirty Fried Rice" - it's a hit with my family. Any vegetables that is nearly its end are good for this dish...

From Food box
1 clove garlic
2 large flat mushrooms
1 carrot
1 zucchini

From pantry
1 and half cup of brown and white rices
soy sauce
boiled eggs (I used both chook and quails eggs as we have them here)

To create
1. Put brown rice on, boil for 15 minutes approx.
2. Using hand food processor, chop mushrooms, carrot and zucchini
3. Put oil and garlic in deep frypan, heat then add mushroom pieces and stir until its cooked enough
4. Add the carrot and zucchini and stir for another 10 minutes
5. In meanwhile, add white rice to the pot of brown rice (usually only need 15 minutes cooking)
6. Drain and rinse rice then add rice to the frypan and combine together
7. Give it a dose of soy sauce and stir quickly
8. Add chopped eggs and fold gently before serve.

Let me know how you go with this one, or if you've got a better improvisation...

Happy chowing!

The start of Food Box Recipes

After picking up my weekly food box containing organic vegetables and fruits, I realised I'd need recipes or ideas of using up all those. So here's the start of the recipes blog as it would remind me what I've tried and worked for my family (consists of 3 kids under 11).

Contributions from others are very much welcomed as it would give variety here!

All recipes will be based on seasonal food boxes and all designed for 4 serves (my two little ones usually counts as 1 adult serve anyway).

So in the organisation of this blog, I will include what I've got in the food box that week, the recipes I've found that fits in as I would like to use no less than 50% of the food box contents in each recipe. As I am on a Low GI diet (due to my health issues) so it will be 1/3 carb, 1/4 protein and the rest full of vegetables and herbs or fruits where needed.

Anyone who would like to add theirs, please do email me the full recipe with its source and I will post it here. It is open to all.

Thanks and happy chowing!
