Fried Rice (10-minute Basic Recipe)
This is an egg-tremely (can’t resist the pun) fast and simple fried rice to whip up with a minimal of ingredients. I cook this during “fresh food shortages” in my kitchen pantry. All you need is some overnight refrigerated rice, eggs and some very basic pantry ingredients like garlic and shallots and bravo! … you can whip up this fried rice in no time at all. With this base fried rice recipe, you can whip up all kinds of fried rice variations by adding your own ingredients.
