Do you know what’s a great way to take fried rice to the next level? Using leftover rice, whether it’s from your homemade batch or snagged from your favorite Chinese restaurants! I also love to add a scrambled egg. And let’s not forget about the side dishes! A zesty cucumber salad to cool down the heat, some juicy teriyaki-glazed chicken to add a protein punch, or a comforting bowl of miso soup to slurp alongside your rice.
