I have not left my house in three days. I have been indoors since Sunday. I am glad that today we are back at school. I really needed to get out of my house. I felt like I was running out of enjoyable things to do! Sure, there is always something to clean but that is just boring! I spent my time baking, making cards, scrapbooking and watching some TV. Now it’s time to get back on a schedule…bye bye freezing weather (I hope)!
My younger brother Arian likes to cook. He is the one that pushed me to blog and the one who taught how to make fried rice. We’ve been eating a lot of fried rice ever since. He thinks we are crazy for eating it so much!
These are the cast of characters.
And after they get to know each other this is how deliciously close they are.
This recipe makes TONS of rice. I like to make a large batch because Julissa is obsessed with all things Asian so this way there is plenty!
Arian’s Vegetable Fried Rice
- 8 cups cooked white rice (left over rice is best because it is firmer)
- 1 carrot, shredded
- 3 green onions,sliced
- 2 eggs, scrambled
- 3/4 cup frozen peas, thawed
- 1 garlic clove,finely chopped
- 8 tbsp soy sauce
- 4 tbsp vegetable oil
Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a non-stick skillet. Add egg and scramble until cooked. Set aside.
Heat 3 tablespoons vegetable oil in a separate large non-stick pan/skillet. Add all the rice and saute/fry until all rice is coated in oil and warmed a bit. Add more oil if needed.
Add peas, carrots and garlic into rice and stir until all veggies are mixed in well. Allow to heat for about 4 minutes. Optional-If you like you can add cooked shrimp, chicken,beef,ham at this point.
Add scrambled egg and soy sauce to rice and vegetables. Stir until well mixed and everything is heated through.
