Stir-fried rice garnish with vegetables

Boil the rice in plenty of salted water over low heat until the grain can be crushed between the fingers. Drain in a sieve.
Saute the vegetables in a wok / pan in olive oil until slightly softened. Add the drained rice, salt, pepper, basil and a little chopped parsley and sauté the rice, stirring lightly. Beat the eggs and pour them over the rice, stirring lightly so that they are incorporated and baked at the same time. The preparation should not last more than 5 minutes and should not be exaggerated with mixing the rice very hard because it will crumble.

For the appearance, put the rice in small round cups or bowls, press well with a spoon back and turn the bowls into plates. The rice will look very effective.

We serve as a garnish for steaks, seafood, etc.

For those who love recipes with an exotic flavor and are fans of meat combinations of any kind with fruits or sweet sauces, I propose this recipe for chicken in orange sauce. It tastes great.


For the chicken in orange sauce:
1 chicken (1,300g weighed my chicken)
Fresh oranges to get 750ml natural juice
1 large onion
6 cloves of garlic
Salt, pepper and chilly to taste
1 tablespoon thyme
1 bay leaf
30g brown sugar
Frying oil

For the rice garnish with vegetables:
300g rice
Water for boiling rice
420g vegetables (young carrots and peas in a jar)
100g butter
Salt and chilly to taste

Method of preparation:
Wash the oranges and squeeze them to get 750ml of fresh juice

We clean the garlic cloves and put them on the small grater.

We wash the chicken, clean it and cut it into pieces, then drain it.

Heat oil in a pan and add the chicken, which we leave to fry until lightly browned on both sides.

After it has browned, take out the meat in a strainer.

Peel an onion and cut it into small pieces.

Put the onion to harden in the oil left over from the meat frying.

When the onion becomes glassy and slightly browned, add over the onion, the pre-fried chicken.

Pour the orange juice over the chicken, if more liquid is needed to cover the chicken, fill with water.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Add thyme and bay leaf.

Then add the brown sugar and season with chilly to taste.

After we have added all the other necessary ingredients over the chicken, we put the food to boil, covered with a lid and let it boil until the liquid is reduced by half.

Towards the end, 5 minutes before the food is ready, add the grated garlic and mix.

Let it boil for a few more minutes and the food is ready to serve.

Next to the chicken in orange sauce, a garnish of rice with buttered vegetables is extraordinary.
I had a jar of green peas in combination with carrots (a treat), I put the peas and carrots in a strainer and passed them under a stream of water, then let them drain.

We choose and wash the rice.

In a pot put 1l water, half a teaspoon of salt and washed rice. Let it boil for 20-25 minutes.

After it boils, we take it out in a strainer and put it under a stream of cold water.

Put the butter in a saucepan and let it melt.

Add the peas and drained carrots and mix. Let it cook for about 2-3 minutes.

Add the drained rice to the pan and mix.

Season with salt and chilly, to taste.

Let it cook for another 3-4 minutes, after which our garnish is ready to serve with the delicious chicken in orange sauce. It has a delicious and very exotic taste.
