Rainbow Carrots and Edamame Fried Rice

September 6, 2016 by MommaCuisine

I don’t know about you, but in my house, fried rice is an absolute favorite! Fried rice can be very filling and satisfying, especially if you add in the right ingredients. Scrambled eggs is a great source of protein and is an ingredient staple in fried rice recipes. I also often use leftover roast chicken – even shredded pot roast or Italian sausage! This recipe is a vegetarian recipe, but you can easily delete the eggs to make it vegan, or add some grilled chicken or shrimp if you choose to. Really, the ball is in your court!
