Jen and I went to dinner back in January, and she mentioned that she had just made a really good fried rice. It sounded so good, I decided to make it the next night. This was actually fun to make, and turned out really good. I’ve never made fried rice, so I was nervous, but it was easy! We didn’t end up having any leftovers either! Enjoy 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 4 c. cooked rice (room temp)
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 c. frozen peas, thawed
  • 2 tbsp. finely grated carrot
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 c. diced onion (omitted)
  • 1/3 c. green onion, chopped (omitted)
  • 1 1/2 – 2 tbsp. butter (I used light)
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce 
  • salt to taste (you just need a few dashes)
  • pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Cook rice following instructions on package. 
  2. Pour rice into a large bowl to let it cool in the refrigerator.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in skillet; add veggies to skillet & cook until onion & peas are cooked thru.
  4. Heat butter over med heat until completely melted. Once veggies are done, add to melted butter skillet & add rice too. 
  5. Make sure everything is coated in butter; add soy sauce & salt/pepper.
  6. Push rice to the sides of the pan (making an empty circle in middle of pan); add egg to center of pan & cook until scrambled. 
  7. Mix everything around for a few more minutes & enjoy!!
