Cook the rice
● In a medium pot, heat the rice, a big pinch of salt and 3 cups of water to boiling on high.
● Once boiling, cover the pot and reduce the heat to low.
● Cook, 11 to 13 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender.
● Remove from heat, set aside in a warm place (covered) for 5 minutes. Fluff the finished rice with a fork.

Mise en place
● While the rice cooks, wash and dry the fresh produce.
● Remove and discard the mushroom stems; thinly slice the caps.
● Peel and mince the garlic and ginger.
● Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and green tops.
● Halve the carrots lengthwise and slice into thin rounds on the bias.
● Cut off and discard the root ends of the yu choy; thinly slice the stems and leaves.
● Halve the orange; squeeze the juice into a bowl, straining out any seeds.

Start the fried rice
● In a large pan (nonstick, if possible), heat a generous drizzle of oil on medium-high until hot.

● Add the white bottoms of the scallions and ¾ of the garlic and ginger. Cook, stirring occasionally, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until fragrant.
