Homemade Fried Rice

Since I live in the middle of no where, Chinese delivery is WAY out of the question. So how do I fulfill the craving for some yummy Asian Cuisine??

This super simple homemade fried rice. It hits the spot and at least helps this former city girl reminisce about days of splurging on take-out.

Ingredients: (these are estimates since I typically don't cook with recipes. Feel free to adjust according to taste preference)

3 cups Rice (white or brown) cooked
1/2 finely chopped onion
2 tbsp butter or olive oil
1 1/2 Cups frozen peas and carrots mix
1/4 c soy sauce
3 eggs

In a large fry pan sauté onions & peas and carrots in butter or olive oil.
Add cooked rice and fry until small pieces are starting to get slightly golden brown.
While the rice is frying, scramble 3 eggs in a separate pan.
Add the eggs to the rice mixture. Stir.
Add soy sauce and stir well.


Some other great additions to make this more of a main dish is cooked chicken, shrimp, bean sprouts, or chopped water chestnuts.

On ambitious days I serve this with homemade egg rolls or spring rolls.

  1. Cooked rice freezes too. I make a bunch of rice at once, portion it out and freeze it. Works great for fried rice.
