Egg Fried Rice

Recipe courtesy of Annie and David Toborowsky

"Fried rice in Asia has a long history. Many people would take leftover rice and mix it with protein to make fried rice. In Thailand, it is a common breakfast food for students and workers as it has protein and carbs to start the day."

Prep Time: 15-20 min

Cook Time: 15-20 min

INGREDIENTS:

  3. Add garlic and stir until you can smell the garlic.
  4. Add eggs, stirring like scrambled eggs.
