This is one of our favorite fallbacks that is easy, delicious AND healthy. Being Asians, we usually always have some leftover rice in the fridge somewhere and random bits of vegetables. What do we do with that? Make fried rice! Leftover rice is highly recommended for fried rice because it is less sticky and drier to fry with. We also like using a non-stick pan or wok so that we can minimize the amount of oil we are frying with. If you don’t have these vegetables in your fridge, feel free to substitute with zucchini or cauliflower or even those frozen packs of mixed veggies! For those who are vegan, leave out the eggs and use tofu instead as your protein.
