Lately, I have been exploring different rice recipes as an alternative to plain, boiled rice. I have also been on a Chinese takeout kick with my weekly chicken and beef stir-fry recipes.

When I’m in the mood to satisfy my takeout cravings, I want to be as authentic as possible, so I figured I would try fried rice. It brings a stir-fry meal together and tastes absolutely amazing!

All you need is rice, vegetables of your choosing (I used peas and onions), an egg, soy sauce and sesame oil.

TIP: Cook and cool your rice at least one day ahead or cook it a few hours before and let it cool in the refrigerator before stir-frying.

Check out the recipe below and put homemade takeout on your dinner table tonight!
