Cooking Through CHINA - Chinese Fried Rice!

One of last month's cooking projects for our CHINA unit study was fried rice!

It was a huge hit, scoring 4.8 out of 5.0 on our family rating system. Even better, we have discovered a recipe that has become part of our family's regular meal repertoire, and it's definitely a keeper.

Fried rice has as many variations as there are families that make it - it's that versatile! Fried rice is basically a method of using leftovers - "a little of this, a little of that" - and transforming those leftovers into a scrumptious low-cost meal. You can use a variety of vegetables, utilize any type of leftover meat, and choose from lots of different spices. As a mama to a culturally "larger than average" family, discovering this dish has been a godsend, because it's a great way to feed lots of people at very little expense.

The Recipe

We used the recipe for Fried Rice from the book "Cooking the Chinese Way." A very similar - and absolutely scrumptious-looking - recipe can be found here


Next time you make rice, make some extra for the next day - and experience this great Chinese dish!
