This fried rice is perfect for using up an extra bunch of radishes and different types of spring peas from the springtime farmers’ market.
Slideshow: Vegetable Side Dishes
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 small shallots, thinly sliced
1 large leek, white and light green parts only, halved and thinly sliced
1 cup mixed spring peas (sweet, diced sugar snaps and/or snow peas)
6 radishes, trimmed and quartered
2 tablespoons minced peeled fresh ginger
2 garlic cloves, minced
4 cups cooked long-grain rice (see Note)
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons soy sauce
How to Make It
In a nonstick wok or large skillet, heat the oil. Add the shallots and leeks and stir-fry over high heat until softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in the peas and radishes and cook until the vegetables are vibrantly colored, about 2 minutes. Add the ginger and garlic and stir-fry until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the rice, and stir-fry until heated through and beginning to brown, about 3 minutes.
Push the fried rice to the sides of the pan to create a well. Pour the eggs into the well and cook, stirring gently, until nearly set. Toss the fried rice with the eggs. Stir in the soy sauce and cook for 1 minute. Transfer the fried rice to bowls and serve immediately.
In a pot of boiling salted water, cook 1 1/2 cups raw long-grain rice until al dente. Drain and use right away or refrigerate.
