Eggy fried rice
Serves 1

1 tablespoon peanut oil

1 piece (1-inch) fresh ginger, chopped

4 scallions, chopped

2 cups cooked white rice

2 eggs, lightly beaten

Salt and pepper, to taste

1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander or parsley

1. In a large skillet, heat the peanut oil. When it is hot, add the ginger and 3 of the scallions. Cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes. Add the rice and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until the grains are coated with oil and starting to brown.

2. Make a well in the center of the rice. Add the eggs, salt, and pepper. Stir well until they start to set on the bottom. Start incorporating the rice from the edges of the pan, stirring constantly, until the rice is coated with egg and the egg is cooked all over.

3. Transfer to a large bowl. Sprinkle with the remaining scallion and coriander or parsley. Sheryl Julian

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
