Fried Rice with Vegetables

One of my favorite things about this recipe is that it is so versatile. Serve the veggie fried rice as a main dish or lunch, or as a side when you’re making fish or baked chicken. 

Vary the veggies depending on what you already have at home, what’s on sale at the store or what’s in season to make this even more frugal.

If you’re making this as a main dish, consider scrambling up some eggs and pouring them in once the veggies are pretty close to being done. Continue cooking, stirring constantly until the egg is done to your liking.
