Simple Vegetable Fried Rice

I make vegetable fried rice for lunch every time I have leftover rice. It’s so good that I even make extra rice on purpose! 🙂 Make sure to use a good nonstick pan and rice that is a little more dry. I used to have problems with freshly cooked rice because it was too soggy, but those problems are gone now that I cook rice in the Instant Pot. I use 3 c. rice and 4 1/2 c. water and cook it on high pressure for 5 minutes, quick release. Leftover rice is great too.

Heat in a wok:

2 T. oil

Stir for a few minutes until starting to brown slightly:

1/2 med. onion, chopped

Add and stir until cooked through:

1/2 lb. assorted chopped veggies, such as peas and carrots

Push the veggies to the side and scramble

2 eggs

Add to the wok and stir until heated through:

4 c. cooked rice

2-4 T. soy sauce

Vegetable fried rice is an excellent side to any Chinese dish!
