Special Fried Rice
There is always some leftover ingredients after a great feast with family and friends and often times I am left with this nagging feeling that I shouldn’t waste food by throwing it out with the trash.
Mummy always told me that people in Africa are suffering without food and here I am throwing it out. The truth is, whether I throw the food or eat it, the food wont go to these improverished groups anyway. It was just my mum’s way of telling me that her money was hard-earned and that I shouldn’t take what I have for granted.
Years passed and I am telling my son to finish up after his dinner. Haha. Okay, I said all that to say these days I try to jumble all those leftover ingredients into what I call “Special Fried Rice”. The key word here is “Special” because it is a jamboree of all the premium ingredients in the fridge.
Leftover Roasted Pork Belly
Chinese Sausage (probably the only ingredient that isn’t leftover)
Leftover Cooked Rice
1. Minced some garlic, fried them up in a heated wok with some oil. Once the garlic is fragrant, add the sausage and all the premium leftover ingredients into the wok.
2. Stir fry ingredients until fragrant, then add the cooked rice and a little dark soya sauce. Continue frying. Sprinkle some white pepper. Add light soya sauce if you like, but I didn’t as the premium ingredients were already quite salty.
3. Fry until the wok flavour is in the rice or until the rice is fairly broken up and well fried (not burnt). Serve!
