This month’s featured recipe is an excellent way to turn leftover cooked rice into a terrific side or a meal unto itself. This recipe takes less than 30 minutes to make, and shrimp, pork and vegetables can be added as desired.
We used Jasmati, an American-grown jasmine rice made by RiceSelect, which is based in Houston. RiceSelect is part of the Texas Department of Agriculture’s Go Texan program, so featuring one of the company’s recipes was a no-brainer.
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons peanut oil, divided
3 green onions, sliced
1 cup shrimp or cubed chicken or pork
1 cup snow peas, cut diagonally
½ cup roasted cashews, pecans or peanuts
3 cups jasmine rice, cooked and cooled
2 tablespoons soy sauce
