#CHOPSTICKSWEEK: Got rice? Easy Fried Rice Recipe

We’re all too familiar with that classic song about the Asian staple. (If you haven’t youtube it for a laugh… ya welcome)

This #WEEKLYMATTERS is about taking our uneaten and leftover food turning it into asian inspired dishes. Angela and I are both of Asian descent so it just made sense to add a little bit of our culture into one of our weekly segments.

This recipe is for the all the times you may have cooked too much rice or just have some unused leftover veggies. Fried rice is a really easy and simple way to use up your leftover rice and vegetables. AND since fried rice tastes even better with overnight rice it’s seriously a win win situation for your food waste habits! With the help of one of my Uncles, we got the low down on how to make the best tasting fried rice ever.


Get it together:*

  • 4 snow peas
  • 1 diced carrots
  • 1 brown rice
  • Leftover bbq pork
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups of rice
  • Salt
  • 2 tbsp of soy sauce

*This recipe used all ingredients we had in our house at the time! Fried rice ingredients are really easy to substitute or remove according to your preferences and what you have in the kitchen. Some of our other favourite vegetables to include are celery and peas! We also happened to have leftover bbq pork and decided to incorporate this into our dish, if you don’t have that on hand feel free to use minced meat or tofu for a vegetarian option.

Do your thang:

  1. Heat some oil in a frying pan (or wok)
  2. Cook all the vegetables separately in a frying pan and then remove it into a bowl
  3. Scramble the eggs and then remove it into a bowl
  4. Place the overnight rice in the frying pan and stir
  5. Combine the bbq pork and vegetables into the frying pan and stir
  6. Mix in the soy sauce and season with salt to taste

We will shortly be posting a video of this recipe, but if you give it a go let us know on social media and tell us using #uneatenmatters!

  1. Heck yes! Fried rice is my go-to when I have leftover rice/vegetables that need to be eaten. I use a dash of oyster sauce in mine, gives it a bit more of a rounded flavour


    1. I was genuinely surprised that my Uncle only used soy sauce but it definitely packs enough flavour when used with your favourite veges! I’m definitely going to try oyster sauce in mine next time! Thanks for reading! 🙂
