For this easy fried rice, I just opened the fridge and pantry to grab whatever vegetables I had on hand. You could substitute any of the veggies below for cabbage, kale, snow peas, green peas, leeks, squash - the sky's the limit! I used leftover Chinese take-out rice, and added some eggs to boost the protein. It's important that you dry out the rice overnight in the fridge beforehand. The result will be wonderfully crispy, browned rice!
