Please note this recipe is not AIP. I’m looking forward to changing the ingredients to make it compliant.
Fried rice is one of my favorite ways to make a whole new meal out of leftover rice. It’s turning into one of my favorite ways to eat it actually. I’ve made a Kimchi Fried Rice in the past but I wanted to make something a little less spicy using fresh bok choy instead of kimchi (pickled bok choy) and bacon instead of ham. The bok choy gives a little fresh crunch and the bacon gives an overall pork flavor. The poached egg on top is creamy and cooling. I like the rice without the egg but it’s not technically fried rice without an egg. You could also fry the egg but I like the lightness of the poached egg.
