Veggie Fried Rice

Have some leftover brown rice? Make vegetable fried rice! The veggies in the recipe below are just a suggestion. Use as much vegetables as you dare! I put whatever I have in it: squash, boy choy, corn. If I think it will compliment the dish, it’s in there!

You may use as much or as little oil as you need. I use about two tablespoons through the whole course of making this. It is a great deal of oil, but you can do what is best for your family. To be completely honest, I have never made this recipe without oil. I am sure it can be done though, if you are adventurous and use tahini and peanut butter. If you do it, let me know how it goes!

Well, not going to hold up the meal prep! I hope you like it as much as I do!
