Fried Rice

  • Save

Rice is a staple for more than half the world’s population. The United Nation reports that rice provides 20% of the world’s dietary energy supply. The human race is very dependent on this little grain. Oddly enough, rice really isn’t that nutritious. While high in energy, rice contains far fewer nutrients, vitamins, and minerals than other staple grains like wheat and corn. The good news though, is that rice is delicious, filling, cheap, and very soft when cooked.

We don’t care that rice is relatively poor in nutrients, we can couple it with foods that give us what we need. I imagine that is how fried rice came to be a thing. The addition of green peas, carrots, onions, and eggs make fried rice far more flavorful, filling, and nutritious than rice is on its own. Easy to chew, easy to digest, and easy to make; fried rice will make a fine addition to your easy-to-chew meal collection.

    Easy To Chew

     Fried Rice is soft, moist, and contain multiple soft textures. Any textures requiring chewing have been prepared so that there are no pieces larger than ¼ inch (or 6mm). These foods are soft enough that, with minimal effort, they can be easily formed into swallowable-sized portions. 

    If a pureed food texture is required, you can put the completed dish in a food processor and pulse blend until smooth. You can add a little vegetable oil or soy sauce to make it thinner.

    Benefits of the fried rice ingredients:
    • Eggs add protein and Vitamin D.
    • Green Peas add Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Iron, Vitamin B-6, and Magnesium
    • Carrots add Vitamin A, Vitamin K, and Potassium
    • Onions add…..pretty much just flavor

    Like a good dentist, a good frying pan is important. You need one you can trust. Some of my favorite cookware are things I got at my wedding reception, many moons ago. I am very happy with the longevity that Cuisinart cookware has had in my kitchen. HERE is a link to a solid frying pan that is ideal for cooking vast quantities of fried rice.

    "Frying Pans! who knew, right?!"
