I’m calling this fancy dinner kitchen sink fried rice, becusae well, you can add almost any veggie in your fridge or freezer. Or even add leftover protein from dinner the night before. You really can’t mess this one up. It’s always a winner in our house, even with my finicky foodie toddler. We love rice in Casa de Dorobek. (And crock pot cooking!) For the record, crock pot cooking usually includes rice. So, I teamed up with Riceland to bring y’all one of our go to dinner recipes… kitchen sink fried rice.
It’s healthy, easy, and delicious. Done and done! For today’s version I used broccoli, cauliflower, edamame, peas and frozen mixed veggies. We’ve also got eggs and shrimp in there! Andy loves to add shrimp, but most of the time when we cook kitchen sink fried rice we go veggie. Totally up to you. That’s the beauty of this dish though, you can make it any way you like!
I love using Riceland boil in a bag rice because you guessed it, it’s easy. Oh and it cooks to perfection every time in just 10 minutes. I also love that Riceland is a family farmer owned company and all of the rice is grown in the United States. Fried rice is a great recipe to have leftover so I typically cook 3 bags for dinner for the 3 of us, knowing that there will be lots of leftovers. If mama’s cooking, we’re making the most of it! Cook the rice according to the package. Steam the veggies that are not frozen or chop them up really fine in a food processor. I always do the cauliflower in the food processor. I know, I know a normal person would give you a recipe with precise measurements, but that’s just not how I cook. And I’m telling you, it really doesn’t matter for this recipe. Here’s my one tip, the more veggies the better!
Once the rice and veggies are cooked and or chopped, add 2 tbs of butter to a large skillet set on medium low heat and add rice. Let rice cook for 5ish minutes and then push the rice to the side of the skillet. Crack 3 eggs in the pan and scramble. (I do one egg per bag of rice cooked.) Once the eggs are cooked, stir them into the rice. Then, start adding in the veggies. Like I said above, if Andy is in charge of fried rice, he likes to use pre cooked frozen shrimp. He typically boils them first just to get them hot and then throws them in the skillet. The last step is to season with a little soy sauce or whatever half open bottle of asian stir fry sauce you have in your fridge! Yummy, healthy, and easy. You’re welcome 😉 Is fried rice a got to recipe in your house?
