Quick and healthy breakfast; Left-overs Fried rice.


A lot of people have rice for breakfast, most times bought or reheated rice dishes from the freezer or previous day. Rice is very versatile and that why it’s on the list of my favorites.

This recipe will work only when you already have some plain cooked rice at home. The other condiments are basically items already  available too. It could be a veg dump in(grab all vegetables in sight), or simply an egg fried rice, hoping you have some lying arround or you could easily get some and voila food is ready… a tasty and filling breakfast.

This is a two in one recipe;

Veggie dump and Fried rice

Egg Fried rice

Both are in the spirit of consuming leftovers in an interesting way.

For the first, Veggie dump and fried rice;

  1. Dress whatever vegetable you have, carrots and co.
  2. If you have ugu or green it works too but you don’t toss it in maybe sauté with some onions, pepper or tomatoes and place on the side.
  3. In a non-stick pan heat up some oil and sauté some onions, garlic and ginger paste with a sprinkle of salt.
  4. Next you put you rice(leftover cooked rice).
  5. Add your spices; thyme, curry, seasoning cubes or soy sauce and then stir carefully.
  6. For a better aroma and separated rice grains add some butter and mix in carefully to avoid mashing up the rice since it was already cooked.
  7. Serve with protein of choice, and veggies on the side.

Now, the simple and yummy Egg fried rice;

  1. Mix in eggs into the cooked rice with clean hands or a spatula/fork.
  2. Saute onions in some oil with a pinch of salt.
  3. Add in your rice and stir, adding spices is optional (curry powder, garlic, ginger).
  4. Add in your seasoning cubes, or soy sauce.
  5. Add some cubes or slices of butter(I have used cooking margarine), and stir.
  6. Finally some chopped bell peppers or green onions, and sesame oil if available.
  7. Easy peasy lemon squeezy lol, breakfast is served. This is a quick fix meal and it can also be made and enjoyed at any other time of the day.
