Autumn is a season that always brings to mind particular flavors and foods.  Apples, pumpkins, ginger and more all bring the flavor of fall.  P.F. Chang’s is celebrating the season with a Fall Seasonal Menu.  These special dishes incorporate fall ingredients such as flank steak, butternut squash, corn, brussels sprouts, red quinoa, kale, candied walnuts, Chinese broccoli, Asian mushrooms, green apples, daikon sprouts, prawns Fresno peppers and scallions.  These fall ingredients also inspired me to create my own Kale and Corn Fried Rice Recipe – which I call Harvest Fried Rice……but I’ll get to that in a moment!

Harvest Fried Rice with Kale and Corn

Ingredients:
3 cups cooked brown rice
4 cups kale
1 cup corn
3 scallions
1 large clove garlic, minced
2 tbsp olive oil

 

kale corn ingredients

Sauce:
2 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp honey (or brown rice syrup for vegan option)
1 tsp rice wine vinegar

kale corn rice sauce

Make sauce by mixing soy sauce honey and vinegar in a small bowl. Wash the kale and tear into small pieces – no bigger than 1″ across – discarding any thick stems. Leave some of the excess water on the kale and place in a covered dish and microwave 3-4 minutes or until kale starts to wilt. Slice scallion keeping white and dark green parts separate. Heat oil in a large skillet or wok. Add whites of onions and sautee until beginning to brown. Add garlic and green parts of onion and stir while cooking for 1 minute. Add in kale, corn and rice. Cook until heated through. Add in sauce and stir well. Remove from heat and serve.
