Basic Chinese Quick Pickling Liquid:


  1. Heat a wok over medium-high heat until smoking. Pour in 1 tablespoon of the oil. Add the mushrooms and eggs and stir continually until the eggs are softly cooked, about 20 seconds, and then transfer the mushrooms and eggs to a bowl. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons oil to the wok and heat until hot. Add the rice, season the mixture with the five-spice powder and stir-fry until heated through. 
  2. Return the mushrooms and eggs to the wok with the Pickled Vegetables and stir continually until very hot. Season the mixture with the sesame oil and soy and sprinkle with salt and white pepper. Toss well, and then transfer the mixture to a serving platter. Garnish with the ramps and sprinkle some chili powder over the top. Serve warm or at room temperature.
