This has been a staple in my house for many years. It has changed many times and changes based on what ingredients I have on hand. Don’t be afraid to make changes to accomodate what you have on hand. I have used cashews to replace peanuts. Kale to replace the peas. I don’t like adding egg to my fried rice but if you do…go for it. I love one pot dishes and I love them even more when they are very colorful! I hope you enjoy this too. Its great the next day packed in a mason jar for lunch at work or on the road.
