That’s the way it goes, isn’t it? Whenever you find yourself with a bunch of veggies in the fridge that desperately need to be used up, you immediately think “Fried Rice”. Well, at least that’s the way it goes for me… The good thing with fried rice is that it’s so versatile, you can throw in just about any vegetables you happen to have on hand that day. Or protein, for that matter! 

While I must admit that the veggies I had in the fridge that day are particularly well suited and worked especially good in this dish, feel totally free to swap things around. The only thing you must keep in mind is that you should always work in “layers” and add your veggies according to how long they take to cook, starting with the slowest cooking first, and finishing with those that barely require any cooking at all. Follow this simple rule and you’ll be good to go. Even ratios of rice to veggies aren’t that important; you can’t really go wrong here, just follow your own preference… Likewise, feel free to use a different kind of protein, or a different variety of nut, if you don’t care for the ones I used.

Just let your imagination go nuts and make cleaning the fridge fun and delicious!
