Additional Fried Rice Flavor

If you’re looking for some additional flavor in your fried rice dishes there are a few different things you can do.

Experiment With Your Rice: Although this particular recipe calls for Success® White Rice, try experimenting with other rice types to explore new flavors in your fried rice recipes. Aromatic rice types like Success® Jasmine Rice or Success® Basmati Rice make an excellent base for a fried rice recipe. 

Try Different Sauces:  When making fried rice there are plenty of sauces that can be used. This recipe for example uses soy sauce to give it an umami flavor. Other common types of sauces that can be used to add flavor to your fried recipes are oyster sauce or fish sauce to give it more of a fish taste. 

Think Carefully About Your Ingredients: Other than the rice, you’ll want to think about what ingredients you want to include in your fried rice dish as this will have a great impact on the flavor. Eggs will give your fried rice a more savory flavor while also providing some protein. You’ll also want to have a think about what veggies you’d like to add in, greens like  broccoli, peas, carrots and edamame are typically found in fried rice dishes. Finally depending on whether or not you are a meat eater, you may want to add in some additional proteins like fish, chicken or beef.

What Else can I Make With Turmeric?

Turmeric has a warm and peppery flavor which goes great in soups like this Carrot Ginger Soup With Chicken and Rice or this Red Lentil Sweet Potato Soup. Turmeric also has a slight hint of bitterness which tastes great in sauces like Greek tzatziki as seen in this Salmon Rice Bowl With Yogurt Drizzle.
