Dinner in 15 Minutes? Yes! Fried Rice

friedriceapril2012.jpg

A few months ago I came up with this familiar recipe (AKA Chinese fried rice) while trying to figure out what to do with the leftover rice in our refrigerator. 

I always use my rice cooker and jasmine rice to make this recipe.  I don't think the type of rice you use matters as much as making sure that you use cold rice.  I tried it once with warm rice and it came out very mushy.

This meal is perfect for a quick weekday dinner.

If you try it, let me know what you think.
