Created by Frog Holler intern, Susan Storck, this simple dish perks up mild-flavored fried rice with the zip of arugula. For those who find fresh arugula a bit strong, cooking this peppery herb takes some of the bite out of the flavor.
Chop arugula finely. Heat preferred oil and when hot, add the rice and chopped arugula. Continue to fry the rice and arugula until rice is thoroughly warmed and arugula has wilted. Then add a generous helping of nutritional yeast and a moderate amount of shredded coconut. Yes, that was coconut. Mix gently to blend flavors; add salt or tamari to taste, but it shouldn't need much.
Strange but curiously delicious!
