My Mom's Fried Rice

Here is a super easy fried rice recipe from my mom. It does call for minute rice, but don't judge. My family swears that's what makes it so amazing! (Plus how do you think it has the easy title right?) But if you have regular rice leftover in your fridge- try it out and let me know how it turns out- I'm sure great! This recipe is very adaptable: use white or brown minute rice, add in green onions, regular onions or both. You can throw in some peas if you want some veggies! Just whatever your family likes. I actually had this leftover rice twice for breakfast this week with an additional egg. Yum!

Mom's Fried Rice
Makes around 3 cups 

2 cups minute rice, white or brown
onion, chopped (1/2 cup-1 cup to your preference)
green onions, chopped (to your preference again)
2-3 Tbsp dairy free butter or margarine
2-3 eggs
salt and pepper, to taste
soy sauce, to taste

Cook the minute rice as directed. While the rice is cooking, melt the butter in a big frying pan and saute the chopped onions until they are about done. Scoot them over to the corner of your pan and scramble 3 eggs. Once the eggs are done mix them up with the onions and add the cooked rice. If you need to add more butter go ahead and do so (I won't tell). Mix everything all together and add lots of salt and pepper. Then drizzle soy sauce over it but don't overkill. You don't want the rice to be brown unless it's brown rice. :) Less is usually more and you can always add later if you need to. And it's done! Enjoy!
