Can you cut 1 Tonne of carbon pollution out of your life?Take the challenge
Whenever I look into other people's fridges, more often than not, they have leftover rice. As the sun rises every morning and sets every evening, leftover rice seems to be a natural phenomenon of life. So rather than just heat up the rice or eating it cold… why not use whatever you have on hand to make a delicious curry fried rice.
This recipe is easy, however completely changeable depending on what is in your fridge. So don't be afraid to tweak it and get creative.
- Vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- Garlic clove
- Leftover vegetables
- Red curry paste
- Leftover cooked rice
- Heat 1 ½ tablespoons of vegetable oil in a large nonstick skiller over high heat.
- Add 1 beaten egg and swirl in the pan to make a thin omelet; once the edges firm up, use a spatula to to flip it over. Cook for another 15 seconds then slide it onto your cutting board.
- Reheat the skillet (or wok) over medium-high heat. Add a tablespoon of oil and garlic.
- Add vegetables, greens and pepper to the pan and stir fry to heat through.
- Add 1-2 teaspoons of red curry paste. Taste to see if the flavor is sufficient, if not, then add more curry paste as needed.
- Add the rice, keep stir-frying for 1-2 minutes.
- Turn off heat, stir in the ginger and season with salt.
And there you have it. Simple, easy and delicious!
