Vegetable Fried Rice – easy and delicious

So I made this as a side to my honey garlic and ginger chicken. Vegetable fried rice is really easy to make

What you need

Rice
Carrots
Mushrooms
Celery
Green onions (scallions)
Green and Red Peppers

Chop all the vegetables (except carrots) into small chunks. Cut the carrots into thin slices. Just make cut as much vegetables as you want to add to the rice.

These are the vegetables I used but you can put in any veggies you want. First cook the rice, when the rice is cook grab another pot and put it on the burner on meduim head, throw in enough vegetable oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Once the vegetable oil is hot toss in the carrots. Let them cook for a few minutes to soften them, then add the rest of the vegetables and cover. When the vegetables are almost cooked uncover so the water can be boiled off, when the water evaporates add the rice and stir it around for a few minutes. This allows the flavour of the vegetables to infuse with the rice. When it looks good and cooked your done, that’s it.  You can add salt if you like, I like it without, but my girlfriend likes it with salt.

I’m no master chef, but I know what tastes good. If you have any recipes you like that are easy to make send them my way.
