Vegetable Fried Rice

2.6 stars from 5 ratings of Vegetable Fried Rice

Tips

  • Left over rice from the previous night is considered best for the preparation of fried rice. Since I did not have left over rice, I refrigerated a batch of fresh cooked rice for about 2 hours.
  • Make sure each set of vegetables are cooked before adding the next set of vegetables.
  • How to choose Bell Peppers Bell peppers with three lobes are considered best for cooking. The ones with four lobes are a lot sweeter and can be eaten raw.
