Garlic Fried Rice
1 head of garlic – cloves all separated, peeled, and very thinly sliced
⅓ cup avocado oil
- 1 large egg, beaten
1 1/2 cups cooked rice
1 tablespoon sesame oil
3 scallions, thinly sliced
- In a large saute pan, heat up avocado oil. Arrange garlic in a single layer and set over medium-low heat. Cook, occasionally tossing the garlic so all pieces are cooked evenly for about 5 minutes, then transfer the garlic chips to a paper towel covered plate to drain, season with salt.
- Increase heat to medium-high and add egg, cooking until just set, then breaking it up with wooden spatula. Add rice and sesame oil, toss to combine, then arrange the rice so that is is flat on the bottom of the pan. Occasionally press down on the rice, then LEAVE IT ALONE so it can crisp up. Every 2-3 minutes, stir up the rice, then repeat for about 6-8 minutes.
- Remove skillet from heat and toss in scallions and all of the garlic chips, season with salt. Serve with fish or stir-fry!
