You might think it hard to improve tried and true classics like fried rice, but this tasty Miso Fried Rice does just that with the addition of white miso for extra flavor. Made with fragrant Mahatma® Jasmine Rice, a mix of veggies, eggs, and a bit of (optional) sriracha sauce for some added heat, you may not go back to the original version after trying this flavor-packed recipe.
For the perfect fried rice dish every time, use chilled, day-old rice. Letting the rice chill in the fridge overnight makes the grains firm so that they separate when cooking giving you just the right fried rice consistency. The chilled grains also absorb flavors better to marry all of the delicious ingredients in your dish.

Miso is a fermented paste typically made from rice, barley, or soybeans that is traditionally used in Japanese cuisine. It varies in color and flavor depending on how long it has been fermenting. The longer it ferments, the stronger the flavor and the darker the color.
It typically comes in 3 varieties: white, yellow, and red. With its slightly sweet and smooth flavor, white miso is the mildest-flavored is good for soups, dressings, fish marinades. Fermenting a bit longer, yellow miso is earthier and more acidic. Because it’s not as salty as red miso, it’s considered the “all-purpose” miso. With a slightly bitter and pungent flavor, red miso is your go-to for hearty soups, meat and poultry marinades.
