Asian Fried Rice with Bok Choy

26 May

Hearty enough to be the main dish, you could even add some tofu or chicken for extra protein, but also makes an awesome side.  I think you'll really like the different twist on the usual fried rice.

This Asian Fried Rice is everything you’d expect it to be and much more.  Normally fried rice is pretty simplistic in its ingredients.  The Hungry Wife Asian Fried Rice recipe adds in a whole new dimension.  You still get all the deliciousness, but with some extras.  I love that when eating this dish that I can taste each ingredient individually.  Nothing overpowers or takes away from the fried rice, all of it is subtle and perfect.

Hearty enough to be the main dish, you could even add some tofu or chicken for extra protein, but also makes an awesome side.  I think you’ll really like the different twist on the usual fried rice.  Feel free to experiment around a little.  Swap the bok choy with other types of cabbage and taste the subtle differences between cabbage varieties.  You can even try out different types of mushrooms to see what you like best.  When I made this last night, I used baby bella mushrooms, which are one of my favorites.  A note on ingredients:  if you are having a hard time finding soy miso in your local grocer, you can also go to an asian specialty store or you can use Better Than Bouillon Vegetable base.  What you are looking for is a soy miso paste that comes in a jar.  This Better Than Bouillon Vegetable base is close to it and will give you a very similar effect.
