Vegetable Shrimp Fried Rice
15 mins (prep 5, cooking 10)
13 ingredients
4-6 servings
Someone once described to me their version of "the perfect fried rice". This is hardly "the best" by most culinary standards, I'm sure, but it fit their criteria to a tee: dark rice, (not brown rice, but white rice that is dark) separate grains, not sticky and oily, NO peas, NO carrots, EXTRA bean sprouts. I managed to solve my problem of getting the rice "dark", (without using sooo much soy sauce that it turned into a salt lick), by making the rice using vegetarian mushroom broth instead of water. I am by no means an expert in wok cooking, but I tried to describe to the best of my ability the frenzied way I usually make this rice. The key, I find, for all wok cooking is to have all you stuff prepped and ready to go, cuz once you start, there's no turning back! Also, be sure to have a plate ready for the cooked shrimp and egg when they're removed from the heat.
