LFG Mexican Fried Rice
1 Cup Pressure Cooked Basmati Rice
2 Tbsp Grassfed Ghee
1 Sliced Green Onion
1/2 tsp Cumin
1/2 tsp Ancho Chili Powder
1/4 tsp Salt
Cayenne Powder to taste
Step 1: Pressure Cook Rice
Into a pressure cooker, dump 2 cups water and 1 cup dry basmati rice. Add 1 tsp of distilled white vinegar and a pinch of salt. Seal the lid and press the "rice" button. Allow the seal to release naturally after the pressure cooking has ended. This will result in perfectly cooked, lectin free rice. You won't use all the rice for this recipe. So store what you have left over for another time.
Step 2: Pan Fry Rice
Into a hot frying pan, add ghee, sliced onion, 1 cup of the cooked rice, cumin, and chili powder
Pan fry white tossing occasionally to incorporate all the flavors. Your rice is done when you have a few crispy bits and rice is hot and shiny. Add a little cayenne for heat.
