This dish is simple to make, but it's all about having the right ingredients. I learned to make this during a cooking class in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and have recreated it stateside several times since — with varrying results. This time, I got it right, by searching out the most authentic Thai ingredients. It's possible to substitute in brown sugar and a different kind of rice, but it just won't yield the same results. To get the most out of this delicious dessert, visit a Thai grocery store in your area to make sure you are getting the right products.

Simple Fried Rice
This quick and versatile recipe is a great, inexpensive way to use up leftover rice, as well as extra ingredients in your fridge. I used fish sauce as the main flavoring component here because it’s what I happened to have in the pantry, but feel free to experiment with different combinations — for example, you could try two parts kecap manis to one part sambal oelek for a sweet and spicy Indonesian-style fried rice, or just soy sauce and butter for a more traditional fried rice. For a healthier alternative, substitute some diced carrots and peas or blanched bean sprouts and tofu for the eggs. Whatever you decide to do though, make sure to use day-old rice; freshly cooked rice has too much moisture and won’t fry well. Total cost: $2.69 Click here to see Dinner for Two Under $10.

Brown Rice Quiche

When Kathy told her friend Ginny about this cookbook and the kind of dishes we planned to include, she immediately offered up her fried rice recipe. A single mom and news editor who worked and traveled in Asia for more than 20 years, she knows a thing or two about getting a fast, fuss-free meal on the table. She uses leftover meat or fish (salmon is a favorite) — but you can also start with raw and cook it in the pan before you add the rice. The thyme is an unusual addition that Ginny calls a delicious accidental discovery. What’s more, she felt compelled to clarify two things: It’s oyster sauce, not soy sauce, that belongs in fried rice (otherwise, it’s like a "salt lick"), and don’t just serve it for dinner; it makes a great weekend breakfast.

This is an extremely satisfying dish, with richly flavored rice and browned calamari that will surprise even those who think they don't like squid. The same recipe can also be made with peeled shrimp instead of calamari.
