Fried Rice

This is a dinner version of the breakfast fried rice. This can be a side dish, plain or with some vegetables, or a main dish if you have meat to add. Any Asian barbecued pork or chicken would be a great addition. The amount you make depends on the amount of rice that you have. If you have more rice than the recipe calls for, just add another egg. This is a great way to use up any leftover meat or veg (like peas or carrots) you have.

1-2 tbl oil
1/2 tsp sesame oil
white part of 1-2 green onions, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Cup cold, leftover rice
1 egg
1 tbl soy sauce
green part of 1-2 green onions,chopped
salt & pepper

Heat oil over medium high heat. Add onion & garlic and saute until translucent. Add sesame oil. Add any leftover meat or veg. Add rice and cook until hot. Move rice to the sides of the frying pan, leaving an empty space in the middle. Beat egg with a fork and add to the middle of the pan. As the egg solidifies, push the outside edge to the middle. Turn and chop into small pieces and mix into rice. Add green part of green onions. Season with soy sauce, salt, and pepper. Taste & correct seasonings.
