Cook Time: 30 minutes



  • 4 cups cold, day old, cooked white rice

  • ½ cup avocado oil (or canola)

  • 1 large garlic bulb

  • salt to taste

  • pepper to taste

Step 1: Prepare the rice

In a bowl, break apart the cold rice.

Step 2: Cook garlic

In a wide skillet or wok, heat 1/4 cup oil over low heat. Add garlic, and cook on low heat, careful not to burn by stirring occasionally. Cook until golden brown and then remove the garlic with a slotted spoon, draining on paper towels.

Step 3: Candy the bananas

Add rice to the wok/skillet and spread across bottom surface until the grains start to sizzle. Toss the rice to redistribute. Cook until rice is heated through.

Step 4: Add rice

Add the bananas and cook until the bananas are soft and the liquid is reduced and thickened. Turn off the heat. Stir in vanilla extract.

Step 5: Complete

Add 3/4 of the garlic to the wok/skillet and fold into fried rice until mixed. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve immediately, garnishing top with the remaining garlic bits.
