Oriental Fried Rice

The quantities here are pretty much up to you. You will not make any mistakes - trust me. The key is to add what you like - basically just clean out the fridge. If you love mushrooms, add a bunch. If you hate mushrooms, give 'em to the dog and add something else.


  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 1/2 cup sliced carrot - I like to slice in matchsticks; you do what you like
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions
  • 4-6 cups cooked rice, cold
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • sesame oil
  • sliced green onions for garnish


  1. Heat pan or wok on medium heat with oil
  2. Add carrots and stir fry for 2-3 minutes
  3. Add green onions and continue to cook for 2 more minutes
  4. Add rice and stir with spatula constantly for 3-5 minutes until hot
  5. Add soy and mix in
  6. Gently add beaten eggs over the rice and stir until eggs are mixed in well and cooked through
  7. Before serving, sprinkle with green onions and lightly with sesame oil - serve hot.
