Fried Rice

So all those veggies that were left over from your raw veggie and dip plate at your Memorial Day cookout/ pool fiesta, they have a place to go. Its called a screaming hot frying pan. And that, along with some culinary magic, will turn them into fried rice. You Need:

2 cups diced raw veggies. Anything goes here, brocolli, peppers, cellery, cauliflower, etc.
1 cup rice
3 tablespoons the asian sauce of your choice. I used pad thai sauce, but you can use peanut sauce or simply soy sauce
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 eggs

Bring 2 cups of water to a boil, pour in the rice, turn off the heat, and cover. While the rice is cooking, find a large skillet and put it on the stove. (If you have a wok, use that.) Dump the veggies into the skillet, along with the sauce and the vegetable oil. Put the stove on high, and stir fry the veggies until they are al dente, almost done. When the rice is complete, scoop it into the veggie skillet on high heat. Then crack the eggs into the skillet. Stir everybody around until the egg is cooked and each grain of rice is coated in saucy goodness. Not only did you just make a delicious meal, side, or snack, you saved homeless vegetables from going to waste. Go you!

I feel proud to be the first to leave some love for one who spreads so much love. Thanks for telling me how to get the most out of my party platters, and how to wok a wok. Have you figured out how to change the world? If you have, please try and get my kidlins to eat more veggins. Oh, and stop that oil leak too.
