HOW TO ”Fried” Rice My Way

Got home today from a flight hun-gry! Had to cook something so of course I turned to my go to quick meal – ”fried” rice!

I put it under quotes because it’s not really fried rice. It is my version of it, but still very yummy! ๐Ÿ™‚

Ingredients

  • Rice
  • Veggies
  • Onions
  • Soy Sauce
  • Bacon (or some other meat)
  • Cheese

How To

1. Cook the veggies.

Usually, I use fresh ones, but didn’t have any so I had to resort to frozen ones. Use anything you like – carrots, peas, corn, mushrooms, paprika… Whatever you like!

2. Cook the rice.

I don’t have a rice cooker so I do it old school way. Put the rice on oil for a short time and then put water in, add some salt and cover it until the water is gone. I use 1:1.5-2 ratio (rice:water) which means for one cup of ice, I put one and a half to two cups of water.

3. Fry onions and bacon (this step is optional).

I always fry onions (or garlic). I just feel it gives the meal extra nice taste and smell, but if you don’t like it, you don’t have to use it.

This time I used bacon, but other times I also put in hot dogs or chicken. Basically, you can use what you like. Itย is also optional. You don’t have to use it if you want a vegetarian version of a meal.

4. Mix everything in a pan.

Mix veggies and rice and put it in a pan where you fried onions and bacon.

5. Add soy sauce.

Simple a that. Add soy to everything. You don’t need a lot.

6. Add eggs.

Make a whole in the middle of the pan and add an egg or two (you’ll see how much you’ll need). Start stirring slowly mixing the egg into everything so the egg connects it all.

7. Add cheese.

Nice cheese which will melt all over! Yum! ๐Ÿ™‚

Maybe it doesn’t look so good, but believe me it is tasty! Whenever I make it, it goes so fast! =)

As you can see, this recipe doesn’t require any measurements and you can add or remove any ingredients as you like.

I am not much of a cook, nor do I claim to know how to. I am just sharing this recipe in hopes some hungry, inexperienced student or beginner will try it and like it.

If you do, please let me know and post some pictures of your version!

Bon Appetit Guys! =))
