Fantastic Fried Rice

IMG_2604

The secret to a really impressive fried rice is putting plenty of veggies in it.  In fact, so much so, that the rice is really just an added extra to bulk up and stretch out the veggies.  We really love making our Paleo version of fried rice as basically the fried rice then becomes a total veggie dish and is not really fried ‘rice’ at all.  This is a go to option for us for dinner often when we have had a Royal Breakfast and a good lunch.  It also makes a great side to other asian meat dishes and serves well as a cold leftover lunchbox option.  It also is an easy reheat on a camping trip or night away from home.
