Vegetarian Fried Rice with Egg

  Fried Rice with Sriracha 
  Originally uploaded by Foodmomiac.

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??
