Basic Fried Rice

Jo Zimny


I really like this recipe. You can use all sorts of things in it like shrimp, chicken, tofu or just eat it plain. I added some cooked green onion and celery to mine. If you add other things add a third egg. I prepared the rice a day ahead so it was good and cold when I made this recipe. I used brown long grain rice, but you can use white if you wish.
