Friedrice-1-4Hey all, welcome!  Be sure to follow me on Instagram and Facebook.

Here’s a quick and simple recipe for when you’re in the mood for takeout.   All it takes is 15 minutes to make this delicious Vegetable Fried Rice.  I served this along with Chinese BBQ rib tips for lunch on Sunday and it was a hit.

Friedrice-1-7 The key to making the perfect fried rice is to slightly under cook the rice and make sure that it’s completely cold before you start cooking.  If you’re cooking the rice the same day, simply spread the warm rice on a sheet pan until room temperature then place into refrigerator until cold.  What I love about Vegetable Fried rice is not only the ease but that these ingredients are always in my pantry.   I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

    I was just talking to my Mom on Friday about making fried rice with the extra white we had. It’s always great to use for it. I love adding eggs to mine.

    The cold rice (or day old rice) trick is the key! Folks don’t realize how much of a difference it makes until they do it. Yum.
