Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Riesling, Gewurztraminer, and Chenin Blanc are my top picks for Fried Rice. The best wine for Asian food depends on the cuisine and dish - of course - but these acidic whites pair with a number of traditional meals, spicy or not. One wine you could try is Schmitt Sohne Riesling Spatlese. It has 4.4 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 11 dollars.

Schmitt Sohne Riesling Spatlese

This fully ripened Riesling has highly extracted fruit flavours of apricots and peaches coupled with enough acidity to give it a firm and juicy mouth feel. Excellent by itself or to complement soft or blue vein cheeses, richer style food with sauces and asian dishes.Alcohol: 7.5-8.5% by volume

Instructions

  1. First blanch the raw green vegetables by sticking them in a pot of boiling water for a couple of minutes and then draining them. If you're using frozen vegetables, follow the package cooking instructions, but stop shy of three minutes of cooking time so they don't get mushy.
  2. In large pan or wok, heat your sesame oil over medium heat. Throw in the garlic and ginger and fry that up for about a minute. Add the carrots and stir quickly for a minute or two. Then add the rice.
  3. Now add soy sauce based on your saltiness preference.
  4. Let that sizzle while you whip your egg in a small bowl. Move your rice to the edges of the pan so you have an empty space in the middle. Add the egg and scramble it up. When it looks close to being cooked, stir the rice back into the middle of the pan.
  5. Next, throw in the broccoli and peas or other blanched vegetables of your choice. Add the sugar and stir for a couple minutes, then add the butter. Once the butter is melted through, let the rice sit there. Let it sizzle a bit.
  6. That's it! Serve your fried rice.
