Oriental Rice with Chrystallized Ginger

For years, I wanted to get crystallized ginger but didn't see it in any of the stores.  Whenever, I came across a recipe that called for it, I thought again to track it down but I guess, it was not that important.  The other day, I was in one of the local stores that I frequent on a regular basis and there on the shelf was the ginger.  I am wondering if it had been there all the time or if they just got it in.

Oriental Rice with Crystallized Ginger

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 shallot, minced
1 tablespoon Crystallized Ginger, chopped fine
2 cups cooked brown rice


Heat oil in a skillet.

Add shallot and cook for 3 minutes.

Add the crystallized ginger and cook for another minute or 2. Stir occasionally.

Add rice to the pan and mix all the ingredients.

When everything is heated, it is ready to be served.

Eat and enjoy.
