Here's something you can do with that left over rice!


I have always loved fried rice. I could probably eat an entire bowl. The great thing about this recipe is that you can add whatever you would like! Even kids will love this quick and easy fried rice, perfect for a weeknight meal.



 2 tablespoon butter or margarine
 2 eggs, beaten
1⁄4 cup chopped green onion
1⁄4 cup chopped red pepper (optional)
Fresh coriander leaves
2 cups rice, prepared and cooled
1⁄2 cup cooked pork (optional) or 1⁄2 cup cooked chicken (optional)
1⁄4 cup soy sauce
1⁄2 cup cooked peas (optional)


Melt 1 tablespoon butter in skillet or saucepan. 
Scramble eggs in 1 tablespoon of butter, breaking up the cooked eggs into small pieces. Set aside.
Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter in skillet or saucepan. 
Saute onions and/or red peppers in butter for 3 minutes. 
Combine eggs, onions, rice, and meat. 
Stir in soy sauce until the color of rice is uniform. Stir in peas. 
Heat only until warm.
Garnish with fresh coriander leaves.


* For the rice they suggest day old rice. I usually cook mine in the morning or night before and refrigerate. It will still taste great if you are not able to do this.
