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.

You can never have too many Chinese recipes, so give Fried Rice - Chinese comfort food a try. One serving contains 391 calories, 13g of protein, and 19g of fat. This gluten free and dairy free recipe serves 4 and costs $1.04 per serving. From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes around around 45 minutes. It works well as a rather cheap main course for Autumn. This recipe from Foodista has 1 fans. A mixture of rice, vegetables from the freezer, rashers bacon, and a handful of other ingredients are all it takes to make this recipe so scrumptious. Overall, this recipe earns a rather bad spoonacular score of 32%. Similar recipes include Chicken Fried Steak – Texas Comfort Food, Comfort Food: Crunchy Oven Fried Chicken, and Fried Cheesecake Bites (Aka the Ultimate Comfort Food).

Chenin Blanc, Gewurztraminer, and Riesling 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 Indaba Chenin Blanc. It has 4 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 12 dollars.

Indaba Chenin Blanc

Chenin Blanc is South Africa's most widely planted varietal and the Cape's signature white. This fresh, vibrant version offers succulent flavors of tropical fruit, melon and pear, backed by bright citrus flavors and a touch of honey. Lively peppery notes and an underlying mineral character shine through on the finish.

Instructions

Heat a large fry pan or work and add oil. Slide in the beaten egg mixture and cook for a minute or two until partly set. Turn over carefully and cook the other side. Once its cooked through, remove from pan, slice into small squares and set aside. Add a dash more vegetable oil in wok and fry onion over low heat until soft. Add bacon and cook for a couple of minutes, stirring. Once bacon is browning, turn heat up to high and add frozen vegetables. Cook, stirring occasionally for 3-4 minutes. Add cooked rice, breaking it up with wooden spoon as you go. Continue stirring for a few minutes until the rice starts to form a brown crust in places. Season with light soy sauce and a dash of dark soy sauce. Add a little soy sauce to start with and taste before you add more. Sprinkle with white pepper to taste. Mix thoroughly so rice is evenly coated and coloured. Add reserved omelette pieces and chopped spring onion. Stir through and let warm through for one minute. Turn off heat then add a few shakes of sesame oil. Stir to combine. Serve in deep, generous bowls.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Don't make the mistake of assuming turkey bacon is healthier than pork bacon. Read the labels and look for short ingredient lists (not too many artificial ingredients, preservatives, and other additives). If you're watching your sodium intake, pay attention to that too. It is also important to note that the American Institute for Cancer Research has stated the consumption of ANY processed meat could increase your risk of developing cancer. Although it is not yet clear what causes the increased cancer risk, it could be the preservatives or other chemicals commonly used during processing.

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, be sure to find a gluten-free soy sauce!

  • You can reduce your sodium intake by choosing lower-sodium soy sauce.

  • Here is an easy health swap: substitute brown rice for white rice. Brown rice is a whole grain, while white rice is brown rice stripped of some of its parts and much of its fiber and other nutrients. It is important to note, however, that all rice types raise your blood sugar and should be eaten in moderation. In fact, if it seems like it would work in the recipe, the best option would probably be so-called cauliflower rice.

Cooking Tips

  • If you have too much bacon (is this even possible?) you can freeze individual slices by laying them between sheets of wax paper. Even better, you can put them on a single sheet of wax paper and roll the paper in such a way that you can just unroll it later and remove however many slices you want.

  • You should not store your onions with your potatoes because the gases they emit will make each other spoil faster. For more information about selecting and storing onions, check out this lesson about onions in the academy.

  • Surprising tip: you will end up with better bacon if you add water to the skillet when cooking it on the stovetop. For large amounts of bacon, you can also prepare bacon in the oven.

  • To keep your eyes from stinging and watering while cutting onions, trying popping the onion in the freezer for 15 minutes before you plan to start cooking. Chilling the onion slows the release of the enzyme responsible for teary eyes.
