From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. A nice side dish to serve with any roasted poultry, etc. It can be made ahead and quickly reheated if necessary. Make it herbal, or spicey, or however you wish to season it! And, it is also delicious served at room temperature.
1 cup rice (any variety, or even a combination...clean out the cupboard!)
Combine rice, water or broth and salt and cook in your rice cooker, or place in a glass or ceramic batter bowl and cover with a glass or ceramic plate. Cook in microwave 5 minutes on full power, and then 15 minutes on half power, until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed. Set aside, covered. Heat a heavy bottomed saute pan or a wok or stir fry pan. Add the oil and then stir fry the garlic, onion, pepper and potato 3-4 minutes. Add the cooked rice, mushrooms, tomatoes, sugar, soy sauce, seasonings, salt and pepper, stirring well. Continue to stir fry another 4 - 5 minutes, adding more oil if needed. Stir in the green onions and basil or other herbs. Taste, and correct seasonings to your liking! Serve!
