Leftovers Fried Rice - Take 2
I cook from recipes almost exclusively. I want to try harder to foster my own creativity. In trying to come up with a quick weekday lunch, I ended up making fried rice. So here we have leftovers fried rice, take 2. (Much more interesting than take 1, interestingly posted at almost the exact same time last year.)
I used leftover brown rice from my Thai food, a scrambled egg, some chunks of yellow zucchini, half a small red pepper (diced), frozen broccoli, and some scallions. I cooked it in canola oil and garlic (not enough, though. More next time!) and added a drizzle of sesame oil, a splash of soy sauce and a sprinkling of black sesame seeds.
As I said, this was delicious, but I need to get a better handle on the seasonings. My timing was much better than it has been in the past, despite the mix of fresh and frozen. More garlic!!!!
