I love rice. White rice, brown rice and especially really long grain sticky rice like jasmine!
There is so many things you can do with rice! One of my favorites is my mom's fried rice.
We use cooked rice in this dish so its perfect if you have leftovers you don't know what to do with!
We start with one can of mushrooms, half onion-chopped and 3 cloves of garlic- chopped
Into a fairly deep fry pan or wok if you have one with 1/4 cup of veg oil. Toss those around on med high until the mushrooms start to brown a little. Add in 1/4 cup of soy sauce and 1 tbsp of sugar.
Now add your rice, you want at least 3 cups of cooked rice. Toss that all around, adding a good swirl (lol really I never measure) of soy sauce and a couple grinds(shakes) of pepper.
Now here is the fun part.. you can add whatever your little heart desires to this!
Shredded carrot, peas, snow peas, maybe some chopped baked zucchini or squash? How about some leftover chicken breast, ham or even scramble an egg in it! Cashews or pine nuts would be great too! Ohh or some hot peppers!
Use your imagination and whatever is in your fridge that catches your fancy!
