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 L'Ecole 41 Chenin Blanc. It has 4.4 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 18 dollars.

L'Ecole 41 Chenin Blanc

This fresh and vibrant Chenin Blanc shows abundant expressive aromatics of jasmine, passion fruit, and orange blossom with flavors of star fruit and apple on a balanced, crisp mineral finish.

Instructions

Make my Perfect Brown Rice recipe below. While brown rice is cooking prepare rest of meal. PERFECT BROWN RICE 1 cup uncooked brown rice 1 tsp. olive oil 2 cups filtered water 2 basil leaves (optional) Fix brown rice by cooking in 1 tsp. olive oil until lightly browned. Place 2 basil leaves on top of rice and add 2 cups water all at once. Quickly put on lid and bring to boil. Turn down heat to simmer until all water has evaporated (around 40 minutes). Heat oil in a wok or large frying pan. Add the garlic and cook on medium until lightly golden. Watch carefully so you do not burn garlic. Add the red chili peppers, cashew nuts and toasted coconut. Mix together stevia, Nama Shoyu and apple cider vinegar together. Cook over medium heat for 1 minutes. Push stir-fry to one side of pan and add flax on opposite end. Cook and stir the flax egg for about a minute and then incorporate into stir-fry mixture. Add the green beans, bok choy and brown rice to stir-fry. Cook and stir on medium for another minute. Bok Choy will be wilted, but green beans will still be a bit crunchy. Spoon into serving dish and add lime wedge on side for squeezing over rice.

Tips

Health Tips

  • There are a variety of sugar substitutes on the market?aspartame, saccharin, acesulfame K, sucralose (Splenda), and most recently, Stevia. Many people are against these kinds of artificial sweeteners because they believe they pose a health risk (note: Stevia is derived from a plant and is technically not an artificial sweetener, although it is usually heavily processed.) Still, there is no conclusive evidence that these sweeteners are dangerous, so use them in moderation if you like.

  • Before you pass up garlic because you don't want the bad breath that comes with it, keep in mind that the compounds that cause garlic breath also offer a lot of health benefits. Garlic has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. If you really want to get the most health benefits out of your garlic, choose Spanish garlic, which contains the most allicin (one of garlic's most beneficial compounds).

Cooking Tips

  • Extra-virgin olive oil is the least refined type of olive oil and therefore contains more of the beneficial compounds that get lost during processing. However, its minimal processing could also mean it has a lower smoke point than other olive oils. Once an oil starts to smoke, it begins to break down, producing a bad flavor and potentially harmful compounds. Unfortunately, the smoke point of an oil depends on so many factors that it is hard to say what the smoke point of an oil really is. For extra-virgin olive oil, it could be anywhere between 200-400 degrees Fahrenheit. Most people recommend using extra-virgin olive oil to add flavor to a finished dish or in cold dishes to be on the safe side. More refined olive oils, canola oil, coconut oil, and clarified butter/ghee are better options for high temperature cooking.

  • If you are buying fresh green beans, avoid beans with scars and go ahead and snap a bean in half when no one is looking. It should snap easily. Store in the refrigerator. Before cooking, snap off the stem ends or cut them off using a knife or even scissors.

  • It can be tricky to bake with sugar substitutes, since they are so much sweeter than regular sugar (as much as 600 times sweeter, in fact.) For this reason, you definitely cannot substitute sugar with artificial sweeteners 1:1. The other difficulty is making up for the volume you lose when you take out the sugar and replace it with a much smaller quantity of a sugar substitute. Do some research before you end up with some disappointing baked goods.

  • Here's a trick for peeling garlic quickly. Put the garlic clove on your cutting board. Take a knife with a thick blade and place the blade flat across the garlic clove (the clove should be closer to the handle than the middle of the blade). Whack down on the flat side of the blade with your free hand to smoosh the garlic a bit. Done correctly, the skin will peel right off.
