How To Make Fried Rice Recipe?

    1. In a wok or a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. once the oil is hot, saute the onion and garlic until translucent for about 2 mins.

    2. Add fresh or frozen veggies and cook them until tender. for about 3-4mins.

    3. Once the veggies are tender move them to the skillet or wok, and pour the beaten eggs on the other side. scramble the eggs, and mix them with th cooked veggies.

    4. Mix the leftover rice into the egg/veggie mix until well combined and cook until heated through.

    5. Pour in the soy sauce, give everything a good stir, and serve while hot.

Can You Freeze and Reheat Fried Rice Recipe?

Definitely. I recommend you make more than you need and freeze the leftovers for a rainy day.

It’s convenient to have some in the freezer ready for the next time you feel like having some fried rice without going through all the steps again.

Wait until it is room temperature, place it in a freezer bag, label it with the date, and freeze for up to 4 months. To reheat, thaw it in the fridge the night before and reheat in a lightly oiled hot skillet until hot.

Cooking Tips:

    1. Make sure to have your skillet or wok very hot before you start making it . a cold skillet won’t work as well.

    2. You can use fresh or frozen veggies, frozen ones are mor convenient, but fresh veggies taste better.

    3. You can add cooked chicken, pork, beef, shrimp, or ham to your fried rice. Or even mix them up!

    4. I like to use reduced-sodium soy sauce, but you can use the same quantity of regular soy sauce.

Yes Latasha. I used green onions to garnish the dish. They add freshness, color, and enhance the overall flavor of the fried rice. Garnishing with green onions is a simple yet effective way to elevate the dish. Enjoy cooking!
