|Frozen fried rice for my dorm freezer.|
Freezable, leftover-friendly, and a great way to cram a lot of veggies and protein into a bowl.
2 cups of cooked rice
2 cups of assorted chopped veggies- (peppers, broccoli, carrots, bean sprouts, snow peas, mushrooms, cabbage, etc)
½ a small onion chopped
1 cup of chopped cooked chicken, pork, or beef
2 tablespoons of oil
2-3 tablespoons of gluten-free soy sauce or tamari
3 eggs, beaten
Cook onion and peppers first in oil in a large skillet. Stir in the hot oil over medium heat until softened about 3 minutes. Add the rest of your veggies and stir them frequently. A lid on the pan will help broccoli and carrots steam a little and hurry cooking time along. When your veggies are tender, but not mushy, about 6 – 8 minutes, add the cooked rice and the cooked meat. Stir this into veggies and then add the soy sauce. Make an empty space in the center of your pan and pour the eggs in. Scramble them and then incorporate them into the rice and veggie mixture. Taste and see if you need more soy sauce.
To freeze, fill 1 quart freezer bags half full. Squeeze out the air and seal. Flatten the bag to a single layer of fried rice. Lay flat in freezer and stack your meals on top of one another for the best way to fill a tiny dorm freezer. This makes the rice easy to break off and heat a single serving.
