loves a tasty, greasy fried rice from the local takeout joint, but it’s
also a dish that can be easily (and more healthily) made at home! Throwing together
fried rice is also a great way to use leftover rice, because you want the grains
to be a little tough. Toss in some
fresh chopped vegetables, soy sauce, and a little ham, and you’ve got yourself the
perfect, quick meal to serve to guests, or enjoy solo while watching Netflix in your PJs.
Serves 2 as a main dish
2 tsp vegetable oil
1/2 cup chopped leftover (cooked) ham or chicken
1/2 red pepper, diced
1/2 cup frozen green peas
2 cups cooked long grain white rice
1/3 cup sliced green onions
2 eggs, beaten
1 tbsp soy sauce, or to taste
1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add red peppers and cook for 3 minutes or until tender.
