Clean Out the Fridge Fried Rice


My garden is starting to produce summer vegetables, finally!  So it is time to clear out the other, miscellaneous vegetables that are in the fridge.  First there are the vegetables left from making other dishes: fresh english peas from a dish I made last week, a zucchini that had been waiting to be made into zucchini bread, celery and red onion.

Then there are the items that need to be eaten because the “good stuff” is now ready in the garden: carrots and scallions.

At the farmers market today, I picked up some sprouts since I knew I would be making fried rice.

And of course, there are Farmer Kim’s eggs, don’t know what I would do without those.

Fried rice is one of my favorite dishes to make when I have a variety of veggies around; everyone likes it, and it is a great mix of vitamins, minerals and protein. And…it is quick, so it is great for a weeknight, after a day of work and we are running around to kid activities (this night it was indoor soccer).
