Pick ‘N’ Mix Egg & Vegetable Fried Rice
Sometimes I cook too much rice on purpose so I can make fried rice for dinner the next night using the leftovers. It’s homely and healthy. And with some eggs in the fridge, a spare chicken breast in the freezer and vegetables that need to be used up there’s no need to go to the supermarket either. Winner!
Nutrition Note: Try using brown rice as a more nutritious alternative to white rice. Many of the nutrients and most of the fibre is lost during the processing of brown rice into white. And because it requires less processing brown rice is a more environmentally friendly option too!
