The Best Sourdough Glazed Donuts

 Fried rice is an easy meal that I love to throw together last minute using leftover rice and whatever veggies I have on hand.


If you have leftover rice, make this. If you want to make rice just for this dish, I doubt you will be disappointed. I made my rice in the Instantpot and it was quick and painless while I chopped veggies.

The thing that I love the most about this meal is that it only uses one pan. With 6 mouths to feed and no dishwasher except my own two hands, that is a major plus!
I am also a huge sucker for pretty food, and this is the epitome of that to me. Lots of color, a plethora of veggies, and simple ingredients. This can easily be made Whole 30 compliant by opting out of the peas and subbing cauliflower rice for the rice.
Let me know how you customize this simple meal for your family in the comments below!

    I just made this tonight and I too was surprised it tasted as great as it did. We made the rice pilaf for dinner last night and I had planned to use the leftovers for this fried rice. It literally came together in 5 minutes since I had some cooked sausage in the freezer already. I added a green onion to mine and it was delicious! I'm probably going to make this often. YUM!! 🙂

    I love the addition of the purple cabbage, so pretty! Jicama isn’t something I ever buy, so going to try that as well!

    • Kelsey says:

      I love the jicama in this cause it adds that extra crunch that I love in asian dishes! like a water chestnut, kinda!

  3. […] up a pot of rice or quinoa gives me great options during the week. I can throw together a quick fried rice, salad, wraps, or put it in a simple soup with veggies and chicken […]
