How to cook
Step 1
  • On medium fire, heat oil in a large sauté pan. Add in ginger, and stir constantly to prevent burning. Cook until a light, crispy brown – about one minute.
Step 2
  • Turn heat off, remove the ginger immediately and set aside (leave the oil in the pan).
Step 3
  • Reheat the ginger-infused oil. Add in garlic, red chilli flakes, shiitake mushrooms, and a small pinch of salt.
Step 4
  • Cook over medium heat for about 2-3 minutes until the mushrooms start to release moisture.
Step 5
  • Toss in the asparagus and continue to sauté for another 2 minutes. Add in a bit more oil if needed.
Step 6
  • Then crumble in brown rice to loosen the clumps.
Step 7
  • Add in tamari, salt, and Shaoxing wine (optional), and cook for another 8-10 minutes, or until heated through.
Step 8
  • Finally, add ground white pepper and lemon juice. And either stir in the crispy ginger slices to combine with the brown rice or use them as a garnish. Serve immediately.
