Fried Rice

Today I had something called fried rice for the first time in my life. It was very good! There were crunchy long white shoots in it. Does anybody know what they are?

      1. “Why have I never tried them before?”

        Don’t you avoid cuisines (east Asian) that use them?

        Hippies also made bean sprouts (actually mung bean sprouts) a thing but they most hippy usage was kind of blah (the health food problem – most health food tastes awful).

          1. “this explains it.”

            Other ingredients to look for…

            Lime leaves (use like bay leaves, incredible with fish or chicken)

            Thai basil (very distinct from Italian basil with a minty taste but just as delicious)

            Thai bean paste (more a sauce made from soybeans with a very deep savory flavor)
