Vegetable Fried Rice

April 03, 2023 | Justine Hoover


This time of year always starts to feel hectic to me. Especially this year, as a senior in college, I am overwhelmed with the thought of graduation and moving onto the next step of my life. When life gets a little hectic, I want simple, filling meals to power me through my weeks. This vegetable fried rice does just that. Using staple ingredients, it is easy to throw together in a pinch. I like to make this recipe at the end of my week and use up any leftover vegetables I have in the fridge.

Keep these ingredients on hand the next time you have a busy week, and you may just find yourself with a home-cooked, well-balanced meal!
