Don't throw away that leftover rice! Easy Fried Rice is so much better for you than takeout and a lot tastier, too! | the wicked noodle | #dinner #asian #cheapeats

Easy fried rice is one of the simplest – and cheapest – meals you can make.

Here’s a secret: even if all you do is toss whatever leftover meats & veggies you have in your fridge into a skillet, add the rice and a little soy sauce, it’s going to be pretty darn tasty. You really don’t even need a recipe to make easy fried rice.

But I’m going to give you one anyway. Because if you’re throwing away your leftover rice and not turning it into something satisfyingly delicious, you’re seriously missing out on one of life’s simple pleasures.

I didn’t even have any leftover meat on hand this time and my easy fried rice still made for an awesome, easy lunch. Which makes it great for vegetarians and meat eaters alike.

Peas, carrots, red onion. A little soy sauce, a little oyster sauce – those are all the ingredients you’ll need to keep on hand to whip this up whenever the mood strikes. Then when leftover rice appears in your refrigerator, tomorrow night’s dinner is practically already done! And don’t worry about needing a wok. Although they come in handy and are super fun to cook with (I have this Carbon Steel Wok
and love it (although I also covet this one in Cast Iron), a skillet will do just fine.
