Recipe – Simple Stir Fry Rice with Peanuts and Scallions

Do you make fried rice?

I’m not a huge fan of pork, so usually I make our fried rice without it. Sometimes I’ll make this as our main meal and other times as a side.  It just depends what kind of mood I’m in. Fried rice can be made so many different ways, by simply using ingredients you have on hand.  Not only is it easy, but it’s filling as well.

Here is the basic fried rice recipe I make for my family.


2 cups jasmine rice
2 cups water
1 cup chicken broth
1 egg
1 small can water chestnuts, sliced thin
1/2 cup salted roasted peanuts (2 1/2 oz), finely chopped
3 scallions, sliced thin {use all of it}
1 tablespoon olive oil


Rinse rise several times then toss in to a rice maker.  Add 2 cups water, 1 cup broth and cook according to manufactures directions.

Once the rice has cooked, set it aside.

In a large wok or skillet, add olive oil, and saute scallions over medium heat for about 2 minutes.  Add egg and scramble, add water chestnuts and cook for about 2 -3 minutes longer.  Add rice {you may need to add a little more olive oil to prevent sticking} and toss with other ingredients.  Cook about 3-4 minutes or until the rice is warm and everything is combined.  Add peanuts right before removing the pan from the heat and toss.

Serve with {or without} soy sauce.
