Fried rice is a popular dish that people like to eat for lunch, dinner and sometimes even breakfast. It can be prepared with a variety of ingredients, depending on which vegetables a person might like. Rice is a staple food for my family, so I often end up with left over rice. One of the best things you can do with left over rice is to prepare fried rice.

I always keep some frozen green beans and peas in my freezer for emergencies. These come in handy when I want to make a quick fried rice dish, because these two vegetables go well with fried rice.
