VEGETABLE FRIED RICE

There is something about food brought together in one pan bringing out a complexity in flavours and colours that are addictive and hard to resist.

I love this recipe as  most of my ingredients were leftovers in my refrigerator.

leftover rice in your refrigerator works best for this recipe,if you are cooking rice to use for the recipe,set it in the refrigerator for it to cool down.

I used vegetables that I had ready in my refrigerator only apart from the peas,however you can use whatever veggies at hand,the beauty of the recipe is in making it your own.

You can even make this healthier by using brown rice if you so wish,I find brown rice fry’s better.

This doesn’t take much time to bring together and the only sweat you will break is in chopping up your veggies.

Finishing this rice in soy sauce kisses it with an umami vibe,I love how it also stains my rice,however if by any reason you don’t fancy soy sauce,this recipe won’t be any less mouth delicious if you leave it out altogether.
