Fabulous Fried Rice

Today we are making Garden Fried Rice with Mara. 

Mara asks us the safety rules and tells us some safety rules also. Mara tells the girls to wash their hand while the boys set the tables into groups. Mara goes around pouring grape seed oil into each skillet while Gurparam cuts up a onion. 

The ingredients to making garden fried rice are: “two teaspoon oil, ¼ onions, finely sliced, one clove garlic, chopped, one cup of garden veggies, chopped or grated, one Tablespoon soy sauce, one cup of brown rice, cooked, one egg, beat. That’s pretty much all you need for the ingredients. The materials are: knife, cutting board, graters, mixing bowl, Measuring spoons, measuring cups, and skillet. That’s all you need for the materials.

Silas stirs a egg in a bowl. Then, Yolibeth grinds a carrot. Evyn puts onions in a skillet. The third group is chopping onions. Some people are tearing up kale. Instead of tearing some people are cutting up kale. Some people are cooking onions. Mara is coming around with soy sauce. People chopped and grated zucchini. People put carrots and kale in the skillet. 

Brody stirs up some onion. Brian grinds zucchini.  Miranda scoops up rice and takes it to her skillet. Brody stirs zucchini carrot, eggs, kale, rice, onion, garlic, and soy sauce. 

Mara is turning the skillets off because she thinks it is ready. Soon we are going to eat it. Mr. Pahl said-“It smells good.” Mara and the paper passer outers are passing out cups so we can eat it.

Thank you to our bloggers: Benjamin and Eli! 

Do you remember...

What healthy oil did we use?
What whole grain did we use?
What healthy protein did we use?
What vegetables did we use?


  1. Dear Mr. Pahl,

    I think the oil we used was olive oil. Also the protein was probably the egg. Then the vegetables we used were carrots, zucchini, kale, and onions.


  2. Dear Mara,
    Thank you so much for letting us make the delicious fried rice. It was really good. I hope that this Tuesday we get to make something else that has vegetables, grains, and protein!
    Sincerely, Amaya

  3. Dear Mara,
    The fried rice that we made was delicious! I was one of the ones that wanted seconds but didn’t get any because everybody thought it was super tasty, but at least not everybody got seconds. Even now, I can still taste the fried rice.
    Sincerely, Kyle

  4. Dear fourth graders,
    That fried rice look so delicious. You guys put a lot of work into making that as perfect and to taste delicious. Congratulations to the kids who have never cooked before! Just think that there are adult that don’t know how to cook fried rice.

  5. Dear 4th graders,
    I think the whole grains were the brown rice. For vegetables I’m pretty sure it was carrots, kale, and zucchini. Congrats for the delicious fried rice that we made.

  6. Dear Fourth Graders,
    That was some good rice it was very fun making the white rice we all should be thankful it!

    Sincerely, Danny

  9. Dear 4th graders,

    First, I want to say thank you to Benjamin and Eli for helping with this blog post. It is a wonderful opportunity to share our experiences with other people, and to reflect on our fun cooking lessons together!

    Many of you were correct in your comments:
    -Healthy oil = Grapeseed oil (remember how green it was?)
    -Whole grain = Brown rice
    -Healthy protein = Eggs
    -Vegetables = Kale, Carrot, Onion, Zucchini, Garlic

    Did anyone share the Fried Rice recipe with their friends and families? I hope you try to make this at home!

    I'm looking forward to cooking together this week.


  10. Dear Mara,
    The recipe we did that week was delicious, I hope I can make it at home someday with my family.
    Sincerely Izabelle,

    Thank you for reading.


    1. Dear Cam,
      I was wondering if the fried rice you made turned out differently than the one you made in class. Did you try anything new in your own recipe?
      Sincerely, Beth from Mr. Pahl's WWU class
