I love recipes that you can make tons of and throw the extra in the freezer to save for one of those 'non-cooking' days! We love fried rice at our house! And it's chock full of veggies, so it's good for you, right!?
This is how I do fried rice, but any recipe should work fine!
2 C. uncooked rice (plus whatever you need to cook it)
1 C. shredded cabbage
1 carrot finely sliced
1/2 cup peas
1/2 cup chopped ham (I used homemade cannadian bacon)
2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp powdered ginger
4 TBS soy sauce
2 TBS teriyaki sauce
Cook rice according to directions. in a large skillet, add hot rice, cabbage, carrots, garlic powder, ginger, soy and teriyaki. Cook for a few minutes until the carrots and cabbage are slightly tender (this is why you slice them THIN!) Add peas and ham and stir well. Cover and allow to heat ham and peas through. Serve with more soy sauce.
After the rice has cooled a bit, transfer to ziplock baggies (I did 2 cup portions) lay flat to freeze.
To reheat, place bag in microwave for 30 seconds, flip and heat for another 30 senconds. repeat until heated through.
this makes for a super fast and yummy lunch! It's a tad dry after reheating, but just add a touch more margarine.
