Fried Rice

Fried rice is a great way to utilize leftover rice and make a wonderful side or main course right at home

Now just to be clear, you can use leftover rice, or make a new batch of white rice for this dish

I happen to have about 3 cups of left over jasmine rice we made for another meal.  This is perfect to use for a fried rice dish, because one of the main components is already cooked

I’m going to give you a big tip here:  store your leftover rice in a resealable baggie

Tupperware makes the rice hard.  A baggie will keep it soft for another use

Okay, so lets start with some vegetables for our fried rice

You will need 1 large onion, 1 large carrot, 4 tablespoons of butter, 2 tablespoons of olive oil (not pictured), 3 tablespoons of soy sauce, 1 cup of frozen peas and 4 small scallions

Add your olive oil and butter to a pan over medium heat

Peel and dice your onion and carrot and add them as well

Sweat your onions and carrots down until the carrots are mildly soft and the onions are translucent, about 10 minutes

Now my families favorite part of fried rice is the scrambled eggs and I agree with them.  So 4 people, 4 eggs

Lets give them a good whisk

What I like to do is move my veggies to one side of the pan and start adding a little egg mixture as I go

Scrambling it a bit at a time, add more, scramble, etc

Once all the eggs are scrambled, mix into the vegetables

Now lets add in our 3 cups of leftover rice and the soy sauce and mix that in as well

Add in your peas and scallions

Gently fold to incorporate, then season to taste
