Egg Fried Rice

This is by far my most favorite thing to do with leftover rice. I made this frequently after a long day at work in New York City. Especially when I came home to a bowl full of rice left over from the night before. It’s so quick and easy to make you’re going to love it!

I love eating fried rice with thai chillies soaked in soy sauce or a dark sorghum vinegar. Yummy!

You may add any type of vegetables you like, as long as it cooks fast. Options include zuchini, peas, finely chopped green beans or maybe some mushrooms. The list is endless. This is pretty much a no fail recipe, add whatever spices you like to it too.

Get creative and add what makes sense to you. Listen to your body and give it what it needs. If you’re craving ginger or garlic or more onions, add it to your cooking routine. Your body is a complex being and if it’s deficient in anything, it will let you know. The key is to learning to listen to it. Try gravitating to what it needs, just don’t over do it! 😉

Rest, be happy and eat more ghee!
