As promised: Fried Rice!!!

I love love love fried rice! So I spent a day searching online comparing various recipes for fried rice and utilized this information to create my own, delicious fried rice!

It doesn't taste dry like the cheap stuff from Chinese restaurants and is made from brown rice (not the nutrient free white rice most restaurants use), so it will be different... but in a good way!

Check it out...

2 tbsp of vegetable oil
2 cups of brown rice, cooked & refrigerated (see below for microwave recipe for rice*)
1 cup of green onion, chopped (or 1 medium vidalia onion, diced)
1/4 soy sauce
2 cups of vegetable medley (carrots, beans, peas, & corn), fresh or frozen
2 large eggs

Heat the oil in the pan for 2-3 minutes. Then add the two cups of rice and "fry" it up for about 5 minutes. Add the green onion & soy sauce and cook for 3-5 minutes. Next, add the vegetable medley and cook until vegetables are warmed, but still crisp. Finally, add the two eggs on top and stir them into the fried rice.
If you like having egg pieces in your fried rice, make sure to allow the egg to cook some before stirring it in. Otherwise, just go ahead and stir it in. The eggs help make the fried rice sticky and add just a little flavor to the dish.

Hint: It's best to use cold rice for this dish as it will fry better. However, warm rice works too!

*Microwave Brown Rice
Start by washing 1 cup of rice in a small-holed strainer. Then put the rice in a large bowl (that has a lid) with 4 cups of water. Cover the bowl and microwave on high for 10 minutes or until the water boils. Carefully remove the cover and microwave uncovered for 20 minutes or until most of the water absorbs. Allow to cool for a few minutes before placing in the refrigerator.

And that's all there is to it!!! Now you too can have tasty fried rice with delicious homemade egg rolls. :)
