Fried Rice

I love, love, loved this meal. It was quick, under 15 minutes! It was also a great way to use up leftovers, get in some extra veggies, and it was super cheap to make! You definitely have to put this into your dinner rotation. My husband loves this meal.

Fried Rice Serves 4 Adapted from All You Magazine

4 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 (10 oz.) package frozen mixed vegetables, thawed
4 cups cooked brown rice
3 eggs
Kosher salt
Black pepper
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
Optional: Any leftover protein source you have. I like chicken and pork the best. If I could eat shrimp, I bet they would be awesome too!

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to skillet and heat over medium heat. Add onion and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in vegetables and cook for 1 minute. Add garlic, onion powder, and rice stirring until incorporated and cooked through. About 3 minutes.

Form a well in rice mixture. Add eggs and scramble within well just until set. Then break apart and mix into rice; season with salt and pepper.  Let cook undisturbed until a golden crust forms, about 1 minute. Stir rice and cook until uniformly golden. Drizzle with sesame oil and serve.

Happy Cooking!
