fried rice in my day. Fried rice is a great way to use up odds and ends of veggies from the produce drawer. Here's the striped down version.
Simpler Fried Rice Methodology:
Saute minced onion, garlic and salt in olive oil. Add thinly sliced veggies (carrot, celery, mushroom, cabbage etc.) and cook until softening.
Push stuff to side of pan to clear up space. Fry up beaten eggs, thne mix into the veggies.
Toss cooked (and preferably cold/refrigerated) rice with a bit of oil (sesame or olive oil), break up large clumps. Pour into pan and mix with veggie/egg. Stir to combine.
Finally add frozen green peas, and soy sauce to taste.
