Yummy Fried Rice

Fried rice is one my guilty pleasures.  Fortunately, the hubs does not share my love (for the fried rice that is) so one batch means yummy lunches for a week :)  Here's my favorite fried rice recipe.  It is ridiculously easy and so yummy!

Yummy Fried Rice

1 cup white rice (not instant or quick rice)
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup frozen peas, thawed
2 tablespoons finely grated carrot
1 small onion
1/2 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons soy sauce (or to taste)
salt & pepper

  1. Cook the rice according to the instructions on the package (approximately 20 minutes).  Once cooked, set aside to cool
  2. While rice is cooking, scramble the eggs either in a small pan or in the microwave.  Chop the scrambled egg into small pea-sized bits
  3. Melt butter in large frying pan over medium-high heat
  4. Add rice, peas, carrot, onion, mushrooms, egg and soy sauce to the frying pan; add a dash of salt & pepper to taste
  5. Cook over medium-high heat for 6-8 minutes, stirring often
