My children never like fried rice. They find it hard to swallow and very tasty, not something they want to eat for breakfast. But as they grow up they develop a certain taste for a variety of food (spicy food in particular). These days my youngest daughter Lily would call it “special breakfast”. She would, she would call her brother and tell him: Kuya Ruben, Nanay is making a special breakfast! When the truth is I just want to make use of some leftovers in the fridge. 😀 Ha ha ha…
I like how simple and positive they think of things around them, it’s so pure and true, like everything is well-intention. 🙂
Well… if you want to make a special fried rice for breakfast that is very tasty and kid friendly, you should try this Tinapa Fried rice, see below for the recipe. Enjoy! You are free to add fresh chopped tomatoes and some extra tinapa flakes and some greens (I added Baguio petchay here).
- 2 cups leftover white rice
- 1/2 cup tinapa flakes(4-6 pcs. medium size tinapa)
- 1 tomato, cubed
- chopped onions
- 3 cloves crushed garlic
- salt and pepper to taste
- 4 to 5 tablespoons cooking oil
- Heat oil in a large pan. Add the garlic and onions and cook until light brown. Add the tinapa flakes. Cook for 3 minutes.
- Slowly add the rice. Stir fry for 2 to 5 minutes or until all the ingredients are well blended.
- Add the salt and pepper. Toss and stir fry for another 3 to 5 minutes.
- Serve. Share and enjoy!
