Ultimate Veggie Fried Rice

I love making fried rice. It's one of those dishes that you can pretty much add any vegetable to and it still comes out great. At the end off every wee I always have tons of random leftover vegetables. I almost always have a pathetic little sliver of red pepper rolling in the bottom on my veggie drawer along with scallions, cilantro and onions. So I gathered them up with the rest of my leftover vegetable scraps and chopped them up too make this super delicious fried rice recipe.

My Tips For Making Fried Rice

1. Use cold leftover rice - Fried rice is always better when you use cold left over rice. It helps prevent the dish from becoming mushy. If you don't have any leftover rice you can make some and rinse it under cold water and strain it before using it in this recipe.

2. Turn up the heat - Making fried rice is super quick and easy. You want the veggies to be cooked but still maintain their texture so make sure your pan is on medium high heat..

3. Use what you got - You can use just about any vegetable you have in your fridge. This is the perfect time to get rid of all those veggie scraps! Got carrots? Throw them in! Got Celery? throw it in! Green beans, kale, broccoli, spinach, basil? Throw it in the pan
