Fried Rice

This is one of our favorite "everything in the pot" left over recipes. 

Fried Rice
Olive oil
Sesame oil (if you have it)
1-2 eggs
½-1 cup chopped carrots
½ cup onion
½ cup celery
1 tsp fresh ginger (optional)
2-4 cloves garlic (optional)
½ cup peas (frozen or canned)
½ cup corn (fresh off the cob, frozen, or canned)
1 cup chopped chicken or chopped ham
1-2 cups already cooked white rice
1-2 tbsp soy sauce
3 green onions chopped

Use a little olive oil and a little sesame oil to scramble and cook the egg(s).  set aside. 

Using the same pan, add a little more of each oil. Add the chopped vegetables (ginger and garlic if desired, not the green onion). Cook 8 minutes on medium heat.   

Add the already cooked meat. Add the cooked/cold rice. Stir and mix thoroughly.  

 Add soy sauce, 1 tbsp at a time. Combine well (you do not need much here).   

Remove from heat.   

Add egg and onions. Serve hot.
