Easy Fried Rice: Part 1

Easy Fried Rice feature

It’s been a few posts between savoury dishes so I thought I’d share my recipe for Easy fried rice!

Weeknights, work nights, school nights they all have one definite thing in common……. they’re  busy, busy, busy!

One of the challenges I find as a Mum (there are many!) is trying to keep dinner relatively healthy, interesting and quick to make. There’s lots of delicious recipes I’d love to be spending hours with in the kitchen but the reality is I don’t have hours as a Mum and it doesn’t matter if you’re not a Mum, I’ve been there too, working full-time and fitting in all the day to day stuff is busy and spare hours for cooking don’t usually exist during the week, meals need to be quick, tasty and easy.

Whenever I make my ‘Easy Fried Rice’ its welcomed with open arms by the WHOLE family and that gives me an extremely contented feeling as it’s not all that often that I can satisfy everyone’s tastes (if you own a fussy eating 3-year-old) you’ll know exactly where I’m coming from.

Blake and Zadada are our super number 1 fried rice fans, they always have their hands up for any leftovers to be packed as their lunch the next day.

I snapped these pictures of Blake earlier this week while he was feasting on some leftovers for his afternoon tea. I got a sneaky one in before he spotted me, then I said show me a face that tells everyone how much you enjoy the fried rice!

The beauty of this little dish is that you can eat it as a main meal or you can serve it as a side to accompany things like BBQ Chicken, Fish, Sausages, Salmon fillets pretty much what ever you like.

Next week there will be a Part 2 to this post, I’m going to share a bit of a fancy pants way (not really) but a different way of incorporating the fried rice as a side in a main meal…….Stay tuned for that one (it’s another 100% Zamamabakes family success!)

Bottom line here lovely people is that you’ve got a dish covering just about every food group and it will take you under 25 minutes to make! My kind of dish!

Here’s your How-to:
