Part 1: Rice Mixture
2 Parsnips, peeled, 2 tbsp pine nuts, 1/8 tsp salt, half small lemon, 1 tsp agave nectar
Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until parsnips are rice grain size. Set aside in a bowl. Make sure this bowl is big enough to mix the rest of the ingredients.
Part 2: Mushroom Marinade
6 pieces of Shitake Mushrooms, 1 tbsp of Nama Shoyu, 1 tbsp of sesame oil, 1 tsp of minced ginger, 1/2 tsp salt, half small lemon, 1 tsp agave nectar
Cut up Shitake Mushrooms into about 1/4 inch. Remove the stem of the mushroom before chopping. Place mushroom in a squared or bowl. Add all the ingredients and mix well. Make sure the mushroom is covered with the marinade very well. The mushroom will soften up and look like cooked mushrooms.
Part 3: Spicy Thai Sauce
1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes (soaked for about 2-3 hours), 1 medium jalapeno pepper (if you don’t like it too spicy – use only half), 5 leaves of basil leaves, 1 tsp chili pepper flakes, 1 clove of minced garlic, 1 tbsp of cilantro, 1 tsp sesame oil, 1-2 chopped green onions, 1 tsp curry powder, 1 tsp tumeric, 1/2 tsp white pepper, half small lemon, 1 tsp agave nectar, 1 tbsp nama shoyu, 2 tbsp saffron liquid (soak saffron for 30 mins until liquid turns orange color), then strain and keep liquid, 1 tsp minced lemon grass
Mix everything in blender and keep aside for assembly.
Part 4: Assembly
Ingredients (to your desired amount)
Basil leaves, chopped shallots, thawed frozen peas or fresh peas, brocolli florets, green onions (sliced diagonally), cilantro, green beans (sliced diagonally), tomatoes (chopped in big pieces).
The most important ingredients is a lot of loving feeling while making the dish.
In your rice bowl, mix in the spicy thai sauce and mix thoroughly. Let it stand for about 15 minutes. After letting the rice stand, add in the mushroom marinade. Mix thoroughly. Add all the rest of the assembly ingredients and mix. Serve with slices of cucumber and tomato to balance out the spicy flavor. Top fried rice with more cilantro or chopped basil. Enjoy!
Cheflandria's ThoughtsBy Cheflandria
Who doesn’t love Thai food? It’s exotic, flavorful and it’s very savory. The balance of acid, pungent, sour, sweet and bitter all together makes this dish delicious. I’ve eaten the cooked version of Spicy Thai Basil Fried Rice many times and I never forget flavors I love. I’ve figured out a good recipe for raw rice and incorporated that technique in this fried rice recipe.
There are four parts in this dish. The rice mixture, mushroom marinade, spicy thai sauce and the assembly. I am breaking down the recipe in parts to make it easier to follow. This will make two servings.
