Make one cup of dried white rice according to packages instructions. Once cooked, fluff with a fork then place in refrigerator to cool (if you have leftover rice you can skip this step). Dice up the carrot, pepper, and onion into small pea sized chunks then set aside with the peas and Brussels. Add 1 tbsp of butter to a large pan. Once butter is melted, add in your garlic slices and cook on medium heat until fragrant, about five minutes. Remove the garlic and set aside. Add another tbsp of butter, melt, then throw in all your veggies and sauté for about 5 minutes or until veggies are bright but still crisp. Add in the cold rice and another half tbsp of butter and throughly mix into veggies until rice is warm. Pour over tamari, ginger syrup, and garlic chips and stir to combine. Let the rice sit for a couple minutes while the rice absorbs all the liquid and the rice gets a little crispy. Give the rice another good stir then cut the heat, grab your bowls and utensils, and dig in!
Combine in a tall glass with ice, sip, and enjoy!
