Did you know the humble chive is a superfood?

This green machine is packed with antioxidants, Potassium, Vitamin C and Vitamin K. It’s also a favorite in traditional Chinese medicine and Chinese cooking.

Oh, and it’s the star of the show in master chef Guo Wenjun’s Wild Green Stir Fried Rice, which is featured prominently on his restaurant Chef Guo’s 10-course menu and which he was gracious enough to share with our readers below.

“The Wild Green Stir Fried Rice dish comes from combining innovation with traditional Chinese medicine theory: meaning, food and medicine come from the same source,” Wenjun says. “Chives are one of the main ingredients in this dish that give it flavor, color, and nutritional value. Besides being a vegetable, Chinese chive is also known in Chinese traditional medicine, and has been used in many Chinese traditional medicine prescriptions. It increases energy, regulates hemorrhages, helps with ailments of the liver, kidneys, and digestive track, and even as the antidote for some poisons. Wild millet rice is also used in this dish. It is a small grain rice with a light-yellow color, it's smooth and mild. The recipe creates a perfect combination between Chinese chive the millet rice, tasty and dense in nutrition.”

The below recipe makes one serving and takes about three hours of total cook time—but don’t let that stop you from giving it a try. Most of that cooking time is passive, as you whip up a delicious Chinese chive juice to mix with the rice, then combine those ingredients into stir-fried balls that explode with flavor.
