  • 5 Cups Cooked Rice
  • 3 Tbsp Oil
  • 1 lb Mushroom
  • 1 Habanero pepper
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 Tbsp minced Garlic
  • 1 Tbsp Ginger
  • ½ cup onions diced
  • 1 Red pepper
  • 1 cup green peas
  • 2 Green Onions
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce


  • Heat up the Oil in a pan and add the minced garlic, Ginger, Onion, and minced habanero. Stir continuously and cook until the Onions are soft. About 3 to 4 minutes
  • Add the mushroom and cook till reduced
  • Add bell pepper, green peas and season with salt and black pepper Fry them, over medium-high heat, until the peppers begin to soften.
  • Put the rice in. Toss for a few minutes until the rice is heated through.
  • Season with soy sauce and pepper. Mix until well combined.
  • Stir in with green onions.
  • Serve and enjoy your mushroom fried rice



  • The star of this recipe is the mushroom, so if you decide to tweak or substitute anything in this recipe, please don’t remove the mushrooms.
  • For that exotic, floral flavor I used one minced habanero pepper. If you are like me, you may want to remove the seeds of the pepper to reduce the heat. I also like to use minced Jalapenos if I don’t have Habaneros. I also like the flavor it gives.
  • I used white rice in this recipe, however, Brown Rice can also be used.
