30-Minute Fried Rice Recipe

I love fried rice and often eat it as a meal instead of a side. It's a complete meal with add-ins such as egg, chicken shrimp or beef and loads of vegetables.

Fried rice is best made with leftover rice from the fridge. My recipe is basic, but I encourage you to play around with it and add your own proteins, veggies and spices.


This is a quick and easy recipe and it makes for delicious packed lunches for school or work.
