Jade Green Fried Rice with Crabmeat

Serves 4 as a main course for lunch


I like to serve this as a luncheon dish accompanied by Water Chestnut, Arugula and Endive Salad or a baby arugula salad.

  1. Cook the rice in a rice cooker, following the manufacturer's instructions. Set aside.
  2. Wash the spinach remove the stems and dry on paper towels. Julienne the spinach finely, then dice into small pieces.
  3. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet until hot and add the garlic. Cook over high heat, stirring, for 30 seconds.
  4. Add the eggs and cook over medium heat until lightly set. Cook for about 3 minutes. Stirring with chopsticks or a wooden spoon to separate the eggs into small pieces, until they are golden brown and you can smell their aroma. Add the scallions. Stir-fry for 2 minutes.
  5. Add the cooked rice and the spinach and mix well; the spinach should coat the rice and give it a green color.
  6. When the rice is hot, add the crabmeat, tomato, salt and pepper to taste. Fold together carefully with a wooden spoon so as not to break up the lumps of crabmeat. Serve as soon as the mixture is heated through.
