A quick and easy recipe that takes about 10 minutes to make. I usually include "fish sauce" in my fried rice, but this recipe is made without it.

Ingredients:

2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup diced Chinese sausage
2 stalks scallions, minced
1/4 teaspoon grated ginger (use microplane)
3/4 cup diced vegetables
1 tablespoon soy sauce (or Tamari for gluten free)
1 teaspoon Chinese rice wine
3 cups cooked day-old Jasmine Rice (break up chunks)
1/4 teaspoon salt+ freshly ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil

Directions:

1. Fry the sausage & eggs: Heat up wok or large saute pan on medium-high heat. Add 1 teaspoon of cooking oil and when hot, add eggs. Fry eggs gently until 50% done, remove and set aside. Wipe pan clean. Turn heat to medium-low and add Chinese sausage. Cook the sausage until the fat melts. Remove sausage carefully, leaving as much of the sausage fat in the wok/pan.

2. Fry vegetables: Add the scallions & ginger and cook in the sausage oil for 15 seconds. Add diced vegetables. Cook until heated through, about 30 seconds. Add the soy sauce and rice wine, cook another 15 seconds.

3. Add the rice: Your rice grains should be broken up and as separate as possible. Add the rice, eggs, sausage to the wok/pan and fry until each grain is heated through. Season with salt, pepper and sesame oil. Stir fry until all ingredients are steaming hot.
