Fried Rice was the first meal my husband made for me back in our college dating days. (Actually, I think besides frozen pizza it was one of the only things he knew how to make!) Fried rice is one of the quick dishes I still love to make, especially when we have leftovers. It’s easy to mix up the flavors by changing the vegetables, and easily moves from a side dish to a meal by adding cooked meat. Feel free to leave a comment sharing your favorite fried rice add-ins.

- 2 cups cooked rice
- 2 cups stir-fry veggies (use a packaged mix, or a variety of fresh)
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 eggs
- soy sauce (to taste)
- black pepper (to taste)
Pour olive oil in a skillet set to med-high heat. Add rice and quickly begin stirring with a spatula. When heated through, (3-5 min.) add veggies and garlic powder. Continue to stir until heated, another few minutes. With a spatula, push the rice mixture to one side of the skillet. Crack the eggs and begin stirring with the spatula until almost set. Mix in with the rest of the rice mixture. Add soy sauce to taste, to make rice a light tan color. Season with pepper to taste.
Prepare as above, then cool. Portion into freezer bags, seal, label, and freeze. To serve: thaw rice and reheat on stovetop or microwave until heated through.
