Vegetarian Fried Rice with Egg
The plan tonight was to heat up Dream Dinners Chicken and Dumplings. There were two flaws in this plan, however. First, I did not want a crappy dinner. Second, we didn't get home until 6:10 and D.D. Chicken and Dumplings takes over an hour to cook (despite the fact that the chicken is pre-cooked - that can't be right, but I won't be able to explore that till tomorrow).
I did have some leftover rice in the fridge, so I decided to make Vegetarian Fried Rice with Egg. I've made this before by just winging it, but I wanted to consult a recipe this time, as I've never been totally thrilled with my results. I turned to Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything. Success! This dish took less than 10 minutes, and it was amazing. Dylan ate a bowl and a half. I added frozen peas and frozen haricots verts (from Trader Joe's - love 'em). And, as you can see from the picture, I put Sriracha on mine.
10 minutes folks. For a healthy, delicious meal. Who needs Dream Dinners??
