Longganisa Fried Rice
5 cups cooked rice
3 pieces longganisa, slice or crumbled
2 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons cooking oil
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
Spring onions, chopped (garnish optional)
1 small pack, mixed vegetables (saves time)
½ cup frozen green peas
½ carrots, cubed
2 tbsp. spring onions, garnish
Beat 2 whole eggs in a small bowl, until frothy. Set aside.
In a pan, heat some cooking oil (about 3 tbsp) over medium to low heat. Pour egg mixture into the pan, fry, mix and crumble until done. Turn off heat, drain oil and transfer to a plate. Set aside.
Using the same pan, fry the longganisa. Cook for about 5 to 7 minutes over medium heat. Stirring occasionally to avoid sticking in the bottom. Add the butter and let it melt over lowest heat. (Butter burns easily in high heat)
Gently add the rice into the pan. Add mixed vegetables. Fold in gently all the ingredients until well combined. Cook for about 3 minutes.
Add the egg into the pan and toss it well to mix. Cook for 1 minute.
Add in the mixed vegetables, season with salt and pepper. Keep stirring the rice until well combined. Adjust seasoning as needed. Garnish with chopped spring onions upon serving.
