      1/2   ts           Sesame oil
    1 1/2   ts           Ginger, minced
    1 1/4   c            Peas
    4                    Oil-packed sun-dried tomato
                         -- halves, rinsed,, dried &
                         -- diced
    4                    Scallions, thinly sliced
    3       tb           Cilantro, minced
 
   In a large saucepan, cover the rice with cold water.
   Rub the rice between your hands.  Drain well and
   repeat the rinsing process two more times. Return the
   rice to the pan, add 1-1/2 cups of cold water and let
   soak for 2 hours.  Bring the rice to a boil over high
   heat & cook until the rice is tender.  Fluff with a
   fork.
   
   In a small bowl, combine the oyster sauce, chicken
   stock, soy sauce, wine, sugar, sesame oil and a pinch
   of white pepper.
   
   Set a wok over high heat for 30 seconds.  Add the
   peanut oil and swirl to coat until a wisp of white
   smoke appears.  Add the ginger and stir-fry for 20
   seconds.  Add the cooked rice and stir fry until very
   hot, 2 to 3 minutes.
   
   Add the oyster sauce mixture to the wok and stir until
   the rice is thoroughly coated.  Stir in the sun-dried
   tomatoes, scallions & cilantro, mix well and serve.
