On October 9th, 2012, Tropical Foods had its Flavors of the Fall Recipe Contest with the culinary students at the Charlotte Campus of Johnson & Wales University. This recipe, Autumn Fried Rice with Buffalo Nuts®, was created by Keyone Weathers.

  • 1 tbsp. fresh ginger, minced
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • Vegetable oil as needed

  • In a large sauce or frying pan, add enough oil to coat the pan.
  • Turn heat to medium high.
  • Add onions and cook for 50 seconds.
  • Add garlic and ginger; cook for 30 seconds.
  • Stir mixture so it does not stick and add a very little amount of chicken stock if pan becomes too dry.
  • Add carrots, squash, apples, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  • Cook for 20 seconds and add Buffalo Nuts®.
  • Mix ingredients in pan and cook for additional 20-30 seconds. Add more chicken stock if needed.
