LEFTOVER FRIED RICE

One of my favorite things to do is make too much rice.

Because leftover rice means fried rice!

& fried rice is one of my favorite quick and easy meals to make.

Also, the combination of flavors feel like a warm hug.


Have you ever tried it with a sunny side egg on top?

Really, it's the only way to serve it.

The runny yolk cascading down the rice creates the best flavor experience.


I mean, look at that. How can you not want to take a bite?!

  • 1 tablespoon butter (or avocado oil)

  3. On the open side of the pan, add the butter. Let it melt a little and then add 2 eggs. Scramble in the pan. Once cooked, combine with the veggies.

NOTES

  • This recipe will make two servings.

  • I love storing my ginger in the freezer because it make is so easy to microplane.

  • Feel free to switch up the veggies. I always use whatever I have leftover in the fridge.

  • This is leftover fried rice for a reason. Make sure your rice has spent some time in the refrigerator as it always turns out so much better.



Hope you all are having a happy day!
