Fried Rice




This is the first dish I learned to make on my own.  The recipe called to put the egg in the rice but it didn’t say anything about cooking the egg first.  So I put raw egg in the rice mixture and watched it turn into a gloopy mess.  It was still good though.  I’ve since learned some high-level techniques ( I scramble the eggs BEFORE putting them in the rice) so everything runs a bit smoother. 


People love this dish and it is so easy I don’t even bother telling them how easy it is.  But I’m telling you and you should go make this to have in your fridge during the week for something quick and nutritious.


I only use probable 2 cups of rice to this amount of veggies just to keep the carbs down and it makes for a great side dish or a main dish on its own.  You can add whatever vegetables you want and increase anything however much you want.  You can’t go wrong with this.
