Shiitake Fried Rice

Source: Body+Soul, October 2008


  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 11/2 cups brown rice
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon vegetable oil, such as safflower
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 pound shiitake mushrooms, stems removed, thinly sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons minced, peeled ginger (from a 2-inch piece)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
  • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame, thawed
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced on the diagonal
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce


  1. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil; add rice. Boil until rice is al dente, 30 to 35 minutes. Drain and rinse well with cold water; drain again.

  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon oil over medium. Add eggs; season with salt and pepper and cook until set, 1 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and let cool; roll up and thinly slice crosswise.

  3. In same skillet, heat remaining tablespoon oil over medium-high. Add mushrooms, garlic, ginger, and red-pepper flakes; season with salt. Cook, tossing frequently, until shiitakes are tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Add rice, eggs, edamame, scallions, lime juice, and soy sauce. Cook, tossing, until rice is heated through, 2 to 3 minutes.

    I made this spur of the moment for some dinner guests. I was worried as I never made it before. I did not have scallions or lime juice. However I used some lemon juice I had on hand. It was a hit! Everyone liked it! I used dehydrated [filtered word]akes that i rehydrated. Next time i want to use fresh mushrooms for that meaty texture!

    I meant to say, the book called for rice vinegar in place of the lime juice. Worked very well.

    I also saw this recipe in Martha's cookbook, Fresh Flavor Fast, but it called for sliced snow peas in place of the edamame. So, I made it with both. And it was delicious! Also, my rice vinegar was seasoned, and it was also totally fine.

    Delicious! I used cremini mushrooms, peas and thaimati rice instead. Both me and my husband enjoyed it! It's good, healthy and easy to make!
