Asian Fried Rice is a convenient and complete dish that I like to make from time to time. It is perfect for using leftover rice.
Asian Fried Rice is a versatile dish because you can use any vegetables that you like or have in your fridge such as leeks, carrots, sweet peas, corn, red or green peppers, mushrooms… I like to use sometimes instead of bacon, sausages, shrimps, chicken, or beef.
You can substitute rice by quinoa it is delicious too!
