5.  Add the cooked rice*, salt, pepper, soy sauce, and fry for another 5 minutes.

Notes: Fried rice is best prepared with cold, day-old rice. You can use what ever vegetables you’d like, good options are chopped lettuce, pepper, carrots, green onions, peas, and broccoli. If you add enough goodies to this – it can easily serve as an entrée.


Variations: If you don’t have any day-old rice on hand, you can start frying the onions, pepper, salt, and garlic in oil.  Then add 2 c. water and 1 c. uncooked rice. Cover and wait until rice is cooked.  In another pan, fry vegetables and meat.  Add the vegetables and meat to the cooked rice.  Scramble the eggs into the concoction, add and adjust spices, and serve. 


Substitutions: Pork/Beef, tofu or chicken. Cashews/Peanuts.
