Recipe: Easy Kids Fried Rice

Next time you're cooking a meal with rice, throw an extra cup or two in and freeze the leftovers.  Then, when you need a quick, easy lunch that the kids will gobble up you can whip up some...

Easy Kids Fried Rice

1. Defrost rice (I give mine a quick blast in the microwave)
2. Heat a little oil in a wok (I use grape seed oil).  Crack two eggs straight into the wok, give them a bit of a whisk and sprinkle with some salt and pepper (optional).

 
3. When the egg is set on the bottom flip it and give the other side a brown.  Remove.
4. Heat a bit more oil and throw in the rice.  Fry it for a bit.

5. Throw in some frozen vegetables (I've used a diced peas, corn, carrot and beans mix).  Use about half as much as you have rice.

6. Sprinkle in some soy sauce (I use a gluten-free one so baby & I can eat it too).

7.  Slice the egg and some spring onions (optional. I wasn't sure if my kids would eat them, but they didn't even question them!)
 

8. Mix in the egg and spring onions.


9. Enjoy!

Note: 
This recipe is gluten free if you ensure your soy sauce is.
Leave out the egg to make it vegan.
You could add whatever vegetables your kids will eat, but mix it up - they might surprise you too!
