Basic Fried Rice

Fried rice. Such a yummy thing. Its actually pretty easy to make. The biggest trick is to make the rice the day before. Chilled day old rice will make this dish turn out just right and not a mushy mess. This is a standard basic take on the dish, but there are many ways to add to it!

Fried Rice

4 cups cooked day old rice, lumps broken up
2 tbsp cooking oil
1/2 onion, diced
1 cup frozen peas and carrots
2 eggs, beaten
2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce or tamari

In a large skillet or wok, heat to medium. Once hot, add 1 tbsp oil. Add the onion and cook a few minutes until soft.

Add eggs and move around the pan a lot, until barely cooked. Remove from pan.

Wipe pan clean with paper towel. Turn heat to high. Once very hot, add oil

Add rice and stir around. Let rice sit undisturbed a minute to fry. Toss rice and let sit again.

Add soy sauce, peas and carrots, and egg/onion and toss well. Let all ingredients heat up and remove from heat. Taste and add a splash more soy sauce if desired.
