Egg fried rice
This is a great recipe for leftover rice. There’s always a bit of leftover rice in my house. Sometimes there’s even a lot leftover. So what do you do with it all?
This is a great way to breath new life into the rice and infuse it with fresh flavor.
After you taste it, you’ll never guess it was made from leftovers.
In my opinion, the tastiest food is made from leftovers, but my advice is not to tell anyone. It can be our little secret.
Makes 4-5 servings
2 cups rice
3 cups water
1 cup corn
Ground black pepper
1. Heat a pan with 2 Tbsp of oil and add the rice, sautéing for a few seconds. Add the water and seasoning and bring to a boil. Cover and lower the heat. Cook for 18 minutes and leave covered for an additional 10 minutes.
Another option for making this:
Use 3-4 cups of precooked rice (leftovers).
2. Finely dice the carrot, pour 4 Tbsp of oil into a heated pan and sauté the carrot until it softens. Add the corn and sauté for another minute, then add the prepared rice, and stir fry for around 5 minutes.
3. Push the rice to the sides of the pan to create a well in the center. Beat the eggs and pour them into the well and scramble until cooked.
4. Mix everything together and season with salt and pepper.
Good to know…
You can set aside a few Tbsp from step 2 and sprinkle over top before serving. You can leave out the carrot. If you want to add some sweetness, add a Tbsp of honey or maple to the carrot.
