Ginger Rice

I'm still trying to find ways to spice rice so The Hubby eats it (without too much complaining).  I threw this together a few times, and we both really loved the way it turned out.  It definitely has a ginger taste!

Ginger Rice

Serves 4

1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 large onion (local), diced
2 cloves garlic (local), minced
1/2 cup carrots, diced
1 tablespoon ginger, minced
2 cups cooked rice
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon fresh chives, chopped (optional garnish)
  1. Heat oil in a pan until hot.
  2. Add onions, garlic and carrots and sear until one side is caramelized.
  3. Add ginger, rice and soy sauce, stirring to combine and heat through.
  4. Stir in chives right before serving as optional garnish.
  5. Serve. 
Thankfully, most of the time, I have a delicious sauce to go over the rice, but these are a nice alternative.  Plus, they force me to create and use what I have.  Both skills that I've lost since being in culinary school, but it happens to us all, right?
