Have leftover rice? Fried rice!
Want an easy make ahead meal prep idea? Fried rice!
My boys love it when I make fried rice. It’s extremely filling and one of those comfort meals that just leaves you feeling happy.
With my recipe, you can use white rice, brown rice, sushi rice, jasmine rice… use whatever rice you have in the pantry or leftover from another meal.
You can pretty much use any veggies you like for this. I’ve used Publix Mixed Vegetables, leftover grilled vegetables, Japanese blend frozen vegetables, etc. So just use whatever makes your little heart happy.
You can add the eggs 2 different ways.
I really like the flavor of Kinkoman’s Organic Soy Sauce. It just tastes better to me, but you can use any soy sauce you like. To add some brightness to the dish, I like to splash a little rice wine vinegar over the rice. You can get fancy and add a little sprinkle of ground ginger, turmeric, onion powder, and garlic powder, or you can just keep it simple with soy sauce and a splash of rice wine vinegar.
Seared chicken is delicious with the fried rice. I season it with a little ground ginger, turmeric, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper, and sear on each side for about 6 minutes. You can mix the chicken into the rice, serve it separately, or leave it out all together for a vegetarian version. Skirt steak or shrimp would also be great!
