Prep

  1. Cook rice - If you made rice earlier in the week, skip this step. Use 1 cup dry rice for four servings. For white rice, rinse until clear. Fill a saucepan or Dutch oven (or rice cooker) with rice, water (use 2:1 ratio for water to rice), and some salt. Cover with lid and bring to a boil. Once water boils, stir, lower heat to a low-medium, and cover. Check white rice after ~20 min; brown at ~45 min. Rice is done when it's absorbed all the water. If it's not done, leave the cover on until all water has been absorbed. Take cover off to release steam and fluff with a wooden spoon after 5 minutes. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Carrots / Onions / Broccoli - Prep as directed. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  3. Chop green onions, keeping green and white parts separate. (Can be done up to 1 day ahead)
  4. Whisk eggs.

Make

  1. Combine soy sauce, curry paste and sesame oil.
  2. Heat a wok over medium-high heat and add cooking oil. When oil begins to shimmer, add white parts (reserve green parts) of green onions and stir until fragrant. Add carrots, onions and broccoli and saute until tender, 5 to 6 minutes.
  3. To the vegetables, add sauce and cashews and stir to combine. Gently move the vegetables to the sides of wok and create a space in the center of the wok. Pour eggs into space and cook until scrambled, ~2 minutes. Add rice and stir to combine all ingredients.
  4. Scatter green parts of green onions over the top of fried rice. Serve with extra soy sauce and hot sauce, if desired. Enjoy!

Loved the flavor of the harissa carrots.

My 5 year old helped to make this dinner since it isn't complicated. AND even better, he ate almost all of it and had seconds. He didn't like the carrots, but the rest of us did. It's not the recipe, it's just he doesn't like cooked vegetables of any sort.

Love it. I do make the miso maple carrots from a previous recipe instead of the harissa carrots and it still works great

The salad and dressing was excellent even without and sweetener. The pork spices were great.

Good meal. Carrots were yummy. A great combo of sweet and spicy (used sriracha instead for the hot sauce). Pork turned out great- good favor while still being lean. Rice was ok.

Had to be careful not to overcook the pork. Was very tasty! Carrots were great too.
