Thai Egg Pilaf | Rice. Born in China. The ancient food of humans. We’re pretty sure it’s been around awhile. Actually we know it has – about 4,500 years to be exact. Bruin & I used to study history, so that’s probably the only reason why we’d even know that fun fact, but we’re glad we do. Since it’s safe to say rice can use a little breath of fresh air after sitting around in some dusty Nepalese monastery half its life.
