Vegetable Fried Rice

Print Friendly and PDF

The Hubby and I made a New Year's Resolution to no longer buy bagged salad kits...kind of a weird resolution, but A) they are never great, B) they are expensive for what you get, and C) usually at least 10% of the lettuce is wilted or slimy well before the expiry date.  And also D) one time there was a full dead moth in a bagged salad kit that I bought and was in the middle of eating.

But how this is all working out though, is that we basically just don't eat salad anymore.  Too lazy!  But, we do need vegetables in our life (I'm told), so I made this vegetable fried rice as a side dish for our roasted maple orange pork tenderloin the other night.  It was super tasty, so I had to share the recipe.  The is another Looneyspoons special...they never seem to disappoint.

I feel so domestic and resourceful whenever I use up leftovers in a new recipe, in this case leftover rice and peas.  My mom, Queen of never wasting anything (anything), would be proud.  The rice that I used was some coconut jasmine rice from dinner two nights before, and it tasted really great fried up in this dish.  The Hubby and I got a few meals each out of this recipe, and it was even better the next day.
