2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the rice

  • Rinse the rice.
In a small sauce pot, combine the rice and 1¼ cups [2¼ cups] water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Uncover and continue cooking until the rice is slightly dry, 3 to 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork, cover, and keep warm. While the rice cooks, prepare the rest of the meal.


Prep your protein and peppers

  • Tofu: Pat the tofu dry with paper towels; cut into ½-inch cubes.
  • Chicken, steak, or pork strips: Cut a small corner from the packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer the meat to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Shrimp or scallops: Rinse and drain the shrimp or scallops. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate.
  • Scrape off any seeds from the roasted red peppers; coarsely chop any large pieces.


Cook your protein and vegetables

In a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add your protein, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 1 to 3 minutes for shrimp or scallops, 2 to 4 minutes for steak or pork, and 3 to 5 minutes for tofu or chicken. Stir in the roasted red peppers, peas, and coriander seeds and cook until the vegetables are heated through and your protein is cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat. While your protein and vegetables cook, prepare the chutney.


Make the ginger chutney

  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.
In a small bowl, stir together the scallions, cilantro, ginger chutney base, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Finish the fried rice

To the pan with your protein and vegetables, stir in the rice and ginger chutney. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the fried rice to individual bowls, garnish with the fried shallots, and serve.
