FullSizeRender-10

Don’t you just love those recipes that simply use everything & anything in the fridge? You end up with a delicious meal & a clean fridge!

Chinese Fried rice is one of my favorite rice dishes on earth; it has amazing flavor with different textutes! I actually prefer making it without any kind of protein as I usually serve it with anything grilled (whether chinese or not) or with stir fries. It is this kind of rice that simply goes with anything; unlike bland white rice, this rice adds depth & flavor to any meal!

This dish is very flexible; use any kind of veggie you love/have at hand, add or omitt eggs, add any kind of protein on earth! This recipe is the base for many versions!

P.S. Have everything ready next you as this dish cooks in minutes.
