    Nose's Note:

    Satisfying fried rice with no eggs, no fish sauce, and no meat, but lots of Thai flavor from pepper, garlic, and a bit of curry paste. From Foolproof Thai Cooking, by Ken Hom. He says this is a typical dish of a Thai Buddhist festival in the autumn, which people celebrate by eating only vegetables for a week. This is spicy, and I say this as someone who eats spicy Thai and Mexican foods on a regular basis. My favorite part of this dish was the black pepper, but it did make it hot. If you do not like spicy, do not make this. If you like spicy but not very hot, you may want to reduce the amounts of black pepper and garlic quite a bit. Yes, it says three Tablespoons of garlic. Yes, that's about two small heads of garlic - not cloves, heads. And if you do like things very spicy (mmm), use the amounts directed and enjoy.

      We added broccoli and peanuts. This came out great. Not too spicy but just enough kick to leave a little burning sensation in your mouth. Thanks for the recipe!

      I made this as written but used sesame oil in place of the vegetable oil. Thanks for the recipe.

      I sooo love this. It has become a regular in our house. My go to recipe for leftover brown rice. I use a farmer's mix of frozen veg (carrot, broccoli, cauliflower, peas) so there is no prep. The only thing I add that in my opinion takes the dish to a whole other level is a generous dose of fresh Thai basil. Heaven in under 15 minutes.
