One of my favorite foods on earth is rice. I grew up eating rice almost every day. Rice and beans are a very important part of Brazilian cuisine and we eat this combo for lunch with meat and salad. When I moved to Canada, I noticed that people here don’t eat rice as often as Brazilians do, but they eat fried rice due to the Asian culture influence, which is something that in Brazil is not very popular. To be honest I have never eaten fried rice down there. I know they must have that because there are Asian restaurants down there, but I never had a chance to eat that.
So, now that I live in Canada I often eat fried rice because I totally love it. I always make this recipe when I have rice leftovers. I hate to eat rice the next day. For me rice has to be very fresh to taste good, but in this recipe it doesn’t have to.
It is very flavorful, so easy to make and probably you have all the ingredients for this recipe at any given moment! You know why I am saying that? Because there are no rules to this recipe. You can add any veggie you want, add rice, some soy sauce and you are done. That’s why this is a winning recipe in my home. Enjoy!
