    From the Test Kitchen

    Sautéed mushrooms and pepper, tender shrimp, and scrambled egg add plenty of satisfying flavor and texture to this fried rice. It all comes together with a delightfully savory and sweet sauce, accented by togarashi—a complex Japanese blend that we’re using to season a garnish of delightfully crunchy peanuts for the finished dish.

    1 Cook the rice

    Carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any small stones or impurities). Drain thoroughly. In a small pot, combine the rice and 1 cup of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until tender and the water has been absorbed. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Roughly chop the peanuts. Cut the mushrooms into bite-size pieces. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice. Crack the egg into a bowl. Season with salt and pepper; beat until smooth. In a separate bowl, combine the soy glaze and vinegar.
