I’ve had the pleasure of offering some insights on being plant-based with @alyfegroup as well as sharing one of my go-to Fried Rice recipes! It’s on their IG account and I’m leaving it here too in case anyone misses it. You can use any variety of veggies you wish. Thanks Alyfe for supporting the plant-based movement in Malaysia! 🌱🇲🇾
TURMERIC FRIED RED RICE WITH GINGER
TIME NEEDED: 15 minutes prep time + 20 minutes cook time
For ginger garnishing:
30g young ginger, shredded, grated or thinly sliced
3 tbsp cooking oil
80-90g tempeh, sliced thinly
A pinch of salt
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
For fried rice:
2 cups cooked and refrigerated Red Rice
2 tsp cooking oil
1/2 medium-sized red onion, chopped finely
2 cloves garlic, chopped finely
40g carrot, diced
40g cooked corn kernels
50g four angle bean, sliced diagonally
70g cabbage, diced
2 tsp soy sauce
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp brown sugar
1/2 brown rice vinegar
1 tsp turmeric powder
A dash of pepper
Juice of 1/2 calamansi lime
For ginger garnishing, heat oil in a wok on high heat.
Place ginger in wok and cook for 2 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove ginger from wok and place on a plate covered with a sheet of kitchen towel paper.
Remove traces of ginger from wok, then add in oil for tempeh, with the stove on high heat setting.
Place tempeh slices into wok and cook for 5 minutes until golden brown, flipping the slices so that both sides get evenly cooked.
Turn off heat, stir in salt and turmeric, evenly coating all the slices.
Remove tempeh from wok and leave aside.
For fried rice, heat up oil on medium heat.
Put in garlic and onion and cook for 2 minutes until they start to brown slightly at the sides.
Throw in all vegetables, plus 1 tsp soy sauce. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add rice, followed by salt, sugar, vinegar, remaining soy sauce, turmeric, and pepper.
Stir all ingredients together whilst cooking for 2 more minutes. At some point during this step, add the tempeh.
Turn off heat and stir in lime juice.
Transfer one serving onto a meal plate. Take half of the fried ginger and place on top of rice to garnish.
