Fried Rice with Vegetables


Vary the vegetables if you like. Bok choy, water chestnuts, and baby corn would make a truly Chinese dish. Frozen or fresh corn and peas or red/yellow/orange bell peppers would be really pretty too. If you don't have any leftover rice, make some fresh, but plan in advance so it has a chance to refrigerate for at least a few hours or even overnight. You don't want to start with warm fresh rice for this recipe.

What you will need

3 tablespoons canola oil

1 onion, sliced in rings

1 bell pepper, sliced

4 scallions, white and light green parts only, sliced thin

4 button mushrooms, sliced

3-4 stalks celery, sliced

4 cups leftover brown rice (start with about 1 1/2 cups raw)

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
