Spring Fried Rice is so easy to make and indulgently delicious loaded with fresh peas, carrots, and asparagus!
Here in Florida, we are enjoying lots of wonderful spring vegetables, asparagus is in abundance in the grocery store. I decided to whip up an easy fried rice recipe with lovely spring veggies. This is so easy to prepare but tastes so delicious.
Save yourself some money and make your own fried rice, you can substitute your own favorite veggies that you have on hand for this recipe. The taste will be just as good.
Making fried rice is a great way to use up leftover brown rice. You could also substitute cooked quinoa or millet. I sauteed onions, garlic, spring onions and ginger. Then I added the veggies and cook them for about 3 minutes. Rice was added with a little sesame oil and voila! This delicious beauty was ready to be served. I served it with some Soycurls and my family enjoyed it. I didn’t make enough because it was all gone.
