The seductively savory combination of soy sauce, sake, butter, and garlic seasons this chicken-and-egg fried rice. It's a complete meal that the whole family will devour. Day-old rice works best in this recipe, so plan ahead.
Bell peppers have a Southwestern flair when stuffed with rice, black beans, and vegetables such as corn, carrot, and leek. Diced poblano peppers (which, like bells, are members of the Capsicum family) spice up the filling, along with cumin, turmeric, and paprika.
For a thicker, richer broth that's more in the style of avgolemono soup, simply whisk together two large egg yolks and the juice of one lemon. Stir the mixture into the soup just before serving. If you plan to make the salad another day, then reserve two tablespoons of the pan juices for the vinaigrette.
