Whenever I cook rice, I’ll always make some extra so I can use it to make some fried rice. Fried rice is best made with rice that’s a day or two old, so some pre-planning is required! Then, it’s perfect to take in your work lunch for the next couple of days. Healthy, delicious and frugal and it’s just as good cold as hot. Here’s how you do it:
1. Fry up whatever veggies you have in some oil. I used garlic, onion, and carrot for this one.
2. Move veggies to the side of the wok and add an egg or two. Add some salt and pepper. Stir it around until it’s well-cooked. If you don’t cook it enough, your rice will get soggy.
3. Add your day-old rice and mix it all up. Add your sauce of: soy sauce, sugar, salt and pepper. Let the rice heat through.
4. Top with optional ingredients: cilantro (in this case), tomato, or green onion.
