Sweet Potatoes Fried Rice

I had Potatoes Fried Rice at Nature Vegetarian Delights @ Sin Ming Ave before. But using sweet potatoes to fry rice which I had in South Korea was something new to me. Anyway, I recreate it few days back, it would be more beautiful if I had use different colour sweet potatoes.

By the way, sweet potatoes contain a good source of vitamins C and E, folate and potassium.


Preparation: 10 mins, Cooking time: 5 mins

Ingredients (serves 2)
° 200g rice, cooked
° 100g sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into strips
° 50g-75g local lettuce leaves, torn into pieces
° 1-1½ tablespoons olive oil
° salt and pepper, to taste
° some shredded carrot, for garnish
° few baked cashew nuts (optional), for garnish


Method
1. Heat the oil in a wok over medium heat and fry sweet potatoes until lightly brown.
2. Stir in the cooked rice and season with salt and pepper. Fry about 2-3 minutes or until rice is heated through. Add in the lettuce and mix well.
3. Garnish with shredded carrot and cashew nut and serve hot.

Tip
1. Rice for frying must be cooked at least 2 hours in advance or the night before.
