I love fried rice. I bonded with one of my dearest friends over fried rice. The first time we met was at a bar: I walked up to her and re-braided her hair, she was my boyfriend-at-the-time’s friend and earlier in the evening I had instructed him – at his request – on how to plait a fish tail braid over the phone. When I got there I was like, ‘nope’, and immediately fixed it. Later on that evening we ended up at China Bar eating their amazing fried rice and had a love-in over how much we both loved said fried rice. And dumplings, we’re also big fans of dumplings.
Cauliflower has got to be the most amazingly versatile vegetable ever. Well one of them, I hate to play favourites. It makes an amazing bechamel, ridiculously creamy soup, a fried chicken substitute, and a great addition to salads. And this time it makes rice.
