Fried Rice

Taste the rainbow with the beautiful array of vegetables.

One of my favorite jobs in the kitchen is prepping. I may have said this before in another post, but clearly you can see my love for slicing and dicing on this blog. What makes prepping so much better is having a freshly sharpened knife. I’m a uber kitchen nerd but, you completely catch my drift on cutting ingredients.

The key is to have a well sharpened knife you will be Edward scissor hands in the kitchen with a proper knife, believe that! Well cut ingredients embodies a pleasant dining experience who want’s to eat a big chunk of onion?

What I have learned is that chopping ingredients small, especially in rice dishes, makes those ingredients kid’s and some adults may not favor almost undetectable.

This is a good fried rice recipe to teach to your little nephew, or niece that’s going off to college. And it’s so much more healthier too than ordering take-out. You know exactly what you’re putting into it so, that’s automatically healthier in my book, (that I’ll write someday).

Carrot’s, Cabbage green and purple, were the root vegetables of choice. A colorful display of food is always a pleasing sight.

Once you have master chef all your ingredients by cutting them so intricately. You will put this fried rice together in a few simple steps. Also, check out my video on putting this simple dish together.

  • BKT sandwich 🥪 Bacon, Kale, Tomato. Every sandwich is made better on a Brioche bun am I on point? Or should I say everything is made better with bacon! And for the love of this beautiful sandwich, turkey cannot be bacon 🥓.
  • I’m the only one in my household that loves! Tomatoes 🍅 If you’re a tomato lover like me a delicious treat for your tomatoes is to sprinkle with creole seasoning, cracked black pepper, some red pepper flakes and drizzle with olive oil. Taste so good on a sandwich the next day🍅
  • I called this my Green Queen Platter, cause of obvious reason🍃. I love when green vegetables stay green and crisp and one of the best ways to achieve that is through steaming them. .

These greens were seasoned to the garden gawds, don’t let the modest look fool you. A great way to wake up your veggies is using fresh herbs. A little oil or butter and pickapeppa, which is a Jamaican condiment that adds so much flavor to veggies. Also Sambal is a terrific way to add some kick into your veggies. And another thing when eating so many veggies in one day I never feel guilty about dessert😉.
  • #tbt to these pot of beans! I put my heart, soul and foot in these thangs. I thought, I would have some left over to put in the freezer. But the way they tore this pot up it didn’t go past Tuesday😂. You can check out my recipe in my highlights♥️ I’ll have a more detailed recipe soon.
  • Red Beans & Rice Monday is a tradition in New Orleans that has carried on I’m sure for centuries. I can remember my mom soaking her beans overnight, cooking them as I got ready for school. .
.

By the end of the school day I would walk home and smell red beans & rice cooking from up the block! Every kitchen on the block and around the corner were on one accord it seems, cooking the same traditional meal on a Monday. .
.

The beautiful thing about New Orleans is the smell of the food in the air, particularly in the hood. Not sure what it’s smelling like these days with all the gentrification, but I know a house that’ll always have that nostalgic smell of good New Orleans food. That will catch your nose from blocks away... Mrs. Wilhemena House on Lapeyrouse St. the heart of the 7th ward. This is my Momma’s recipe and good God if you’ve ever had her beans you already know! Watch how I prepared it on my #instastory.
  • My mind is already on Thanksgiving! I made these golden rum sweet potatoes last year and oh my!They were good. These particular yams were straight from New Orleans and I only seem to find them around the holiday season. There’s a hint of golden rum well, more than a hint 😉 and a rich brown sugar butter sauce that compliments these potatoes so well. Recipe coming soon 🍠 #tbt #theeverygirl #foody #soulfood
