Fried Rice

Fried rice is one of the quick dishes I love to make, especially when we have leftovers. It's easy to mix up the flavors by changing the vegetables, and easily moves from a side dish to a meal by adding cooked meat.

  1. We love fried rice here. My most recent addition to fried rice has been shrimp. Even my picky eaters enjoyed it.

  2. I made this yesterday. A few to many veggies for the family but the flavor is great! Will serve this up to my veggie loving friends at the BBQ this weekend!

  3. The key to good fried rice is to let the rice get cold. That way it doesn’t soak up as much of the soy sauce and become gummy. I usually make extra rice when I’m cooking and keep it in the freezer so that it’s ready for the next rice dish. It’s also good with some sweet chili sauce for extra zing.

  4. We love fried rice. Recently I have been making mine with quinoa instead. It is just as good and give us extra protein!

  5. The best fried rice is made from day old rice, so I will make a sticky rice dish with extra rice just so I’ll have fried rice the next day. I also add a few drops of fish sauce (or Worcestershire). LOVE fried rice!

  6. I made this last night and everyone loved it (and I have one extremely picky eater in the house). I added shrimp and I think next time I will add 4 cups of veggies since we had about 2 cups of it left for lunch today and all the veggies were gone ­čÖé Thanks so much for this recipe!
