Fried rice is quick and easy to make at home. It is a great way to clean out the refrigerator using whatever vegetables you have on hand and is a satisfying meatless entree. In this recipe I use carrots, shiitake mushrooms and peas but you can add broccoli, peppers, beans, corn, anything you like. I always have Trader Joe’s frozen brown rice on hand so I just warm it up and use that for the rice. This recipe will serve 3 as an entree or 6 as a side dish.
