I have to admit that I’m not really a fan of sinangag, the garlic-flavored friend rice that forms the basis of many a Filipino breakfast. I don’t remember exactly why I don’t like the stuff, but I think it has something to do with the fact that some people at our house tend to get a bit heavy-handed about adding the garlic.
Give me a plate of Chinese-style fried rice, though, and I will immediately swoop down on aforementioned plate and scarf it down with abandon before you’ve even had time to blink twice. To me, you see, a properly prepared dish of fried rice is a satisfying meal in itself.
These days, however, with all the rushing about people do, I don’t exactly have the time to chop all of the ingredients necessary for my favorite dish. Luck for us urban warriors, canned veg – specifically mushrooms and corn – and fried rice mixes like Clara Ole’s Ora Mix Mo are there to cut down on prep time.
Just grab some cold rice, fire up your wok, throw everything + a fresh egg in, et voila! Breakfast is served! 😉
