Infusing olive or canola oil with fresh ginger is one of my favorite ways to add flavor to stir-frys, fried rices, noodles, or other Asian dishes. I learned this trick from my mom, who makes the most amazing food I’ve ever tasted. Though the ginger flavor is subtle, it makes a huge difference in these dishes. Simply cut up a few 1 to 2 inch pieces of fresh ginger and add them to the hot oil. Fry until they start to brown and then be sure to remove them as the ginger pieces will cause a bitter flavor if you leave them in. Once removed, simply add your veggies, meat / chicken, noodles, rice, etc. Enjoy!
