Fried Rice

We are big Chinese fans at our house. The owner of the local delivery restaurant calls me "swetheart" when I call.
I think my family bought her a boat this summer.
I am sure the kids went to Ivy League schools on my tab.

Then I realized just how easy it was to make things like fried rice at home.

We make this all the time. Have left over meat? Throw it in!
Just feel like corn this time? Do it!!

2-3 Cups cooked rice
1-2 eggs, scrambled
1 Cup mixed vegetables
1 Tsp ground ginger
1 Tbsp sesame seeds
3 Green onions, cut thin
Soy Sauce
Rice Vinegar

1. In large skillet, saute rice until warmed
2. Mix in egg, onion, and vegetables.
3. Add ginger. Season with soy sauce and rice vinegar to taste
4. Add sesame seeds right before serving

    1. Hey Meg, everyone uses boxed this or that every now and again! Nothing lame about it!

  5. I absolutely adore fried rice! Thank you so much for sharing your yummy recipe ;-) Have a great week!

  6. We love it too! I didn't think of rice vinegar I will try that next time

  7. They look beautiful. I've never tried making it, but you have inspired me to try. Thanks for the recipe! Welcome to my blog and leave your comment. I am very happily.

  8. Oh, man, this recipe looks great. I bet it would be heavenly with jasmine rice!
    Thanks for linking up at Tell Me About It Tuesday. I can't wait to see what you share next week!

    1. Oooh...I have never tried jasmine rice. Try it out and let me know!

  9. Oh this looks really tasty! I want some right now!

  10. Thanks for posting this recipe, I have wanted to try for a while. Can you give estimates on the amount of soy sauce and rice vinegar. Also, which ingredient changes the color of the rice? (I don't want to use egg)

    1. The soy sauce and rice vinegar is usually to taste...I am thinking I use a couple tablespoons of soy and maybe 1 1/2 Tsp of the rice vinegar.
      Feel free to leave out the egg, I do it when I make this for a certain friend of mine, it's no big deal. (love when you can mix and match in a recipe!). As far as the color change, it is the soy that changes the color of the rice.

  11. Yum, looks delicious! What a great way to use up some left over meat and veggies! Thanks for linking up with us at the little friday linkup!
