Red Jasmine Fried Rice

When I first stumbled upon this type of Jasmine Rice I was just looking for a healthier rice option and something new to try. It's definitely rich in fiber and nutrients and a great alternative to the regularly used white rice. I decided to create a very simple and clean recipe for this pretty grain so I hope you enjoy.


2 cups of red jasmine rice
4 medium cloves garlic
2 stalks celery
6 leaves chocolate basil
1 small carrot
3 cups water
3 tbsps olive oil
Salt and black pepper to taste

●Place water in saucepan and bring to a boil, rinse jasmine rice in small colander and add to boiling water.

●Cook for 20 mins or until rice is soft in the middle(Be mindful this rice has it's outer husk still intact so it cooks with a bite)

●Drain rice of water and set aside.

●Rinse and chop vegetables, grate garlic.

● Add oil to hot saucepan with a wide base or wok. When the oil is moderately hot toss in vegetables and cook for approximately two mins on low heat.

● Add rice to vegetables, add salt and black pepper gradually and mix till everything is coated evenly.

● Serve this healthy meal with your favorite meats and/or vegetables. Enjoy.
