Gluten Free Fried Rice - My Way

Gluten Free Scallywag_Fried Rice

I could live off of rice. I think. Something about the texture and the flavour possibilities. Curry. Pilaf. Risotto. Stir Fry. Fried Rice.

There are many dishes I haven't tried like pilaf & paella but I will. Eventually. Right now we're eating lots of fresh, crunchy stir fries and trying new (and sometimes a little too hot - I'm a mild kinda gal) curries from my man's new curry cookbook. My favourite rice dish to cook is definitely fried rice. I love all the veggies and the flavour of the bacon. Yep, bacon. My fried rice isn't exactly traditional infact it has some unusual spices. But, hey it's the way I like it and that's what matters right? My little gluten free tastebuds (and tummy!) Well, I suppose it helps that my family and best friend request it often when they visit! I hope you enjoy it as much as them - if not, well change it til you do!

--- I interrupt this communication --- 
Excuse me just a moment, but I have to announce that Perth has just had the craziest storm of (possibly) all time. Skylights, windows and windscreens of cars have been smashed in thanks to the tennis ball sized hail that flew across the city at approximately 130km/hour. Our office is partially flooded and the roads are green with leaves that have been stripped off of their, now bare, branches and emergency services and insurance companies will have some busy days ahead. Wow. This was rather intense for poor little ol' Perth and is the reason I'll be investing in some Wellingtons soon!

River Roads: Perth Storm 22 March 2010

Gluten Free Scallywag Fried Rice:: Gluten Free Recipe

1-2cups rice
1/2 brown onion, diced
4 bacon rashers, diced
broccoli florettes
2 carrots, diced
1cup peas, cooked
1cup corn, cooked
1/2 cooked chicken or pan-fried chicken breasts, shredded
2-3Tbslpn Gluten Free soy sauce
1tsp ginger
1tsp garlic
1/4tsp ground cumin
1/4tsp ground coriander
Pinch cayenne pepper
Vegetable oil

Cook rice according to your preferred method (we use a rice cooker), until just undercooked. Allow to cool. I actually find rice from the night before works best in this.

Stir fry the carrot and broccoli in a large wok (I have a scanpan one) and remove from pan. Whisk eggs and add to hot pan, scramble until just done. Remove from pan.

Heat a tablespoon of oil and add onion and bacon and fry until browned. Add rice ans heat through. Add all remaining ingredients and those cooked earlier. Stir fry until hot and if you wish a little crispy in sections (these are the bits my mum loves and often the first picked out of the wok)

Serve  immediately.

This is so easy to make just cook and combine. Add whatever is in your fridge diced zucchini and capsicum - delish! I often make extra for lunches and enough to freeze for a 'slack dinner' later in the month. It freezes very well, just defrost and refry in a little olive oil for a healthy and nutritious meal.


  1. This is such a great blog! I can't imaging baking gluten and dairy-free, but your sweet treats look amazing. Are you from Perth? That's my hometown too (but just moved east). Glad you survived that crazy storm.

    Hey, I also manage Australia's list of baking and dessert bloggers. Consider yourself added :)

  2. Thanks so much Emma! Some are dairy free for friends and funnily enough ex bosses but I can eat dairy (thank goodness) Yes, I'm a Perth gal with a car that has no hail dents -phew!

    Thanks for adding me to the list - most appreciated. Enjoy my recipes :)

  3. The rice looks great! I have had issues with getting my fried rice to go together well so I will try your way.

    As for the storm, back in 2005 we had a freak storm where softball size hail smashed most of the city. I sat there and watched cars and skylights and windows crash in...then after the storm passed there was a guy kayaking down the street from the backed up water.

    Storms are weird.
