Basil Fried Rice

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Missy Wombat

I take this vegetarian/vegan dish to BBQs and I have to guard it to make sure the omnivores don't scoff the lot before the non-meaters are fed. I usually multiply this several times over as it is so more-ish.

I ate the whole batch myself! (okay, it took me 2 days) Great fried rice. I especially like the addition of chilies. I used brown rice and omitted the green beans, only because I didn't have any. The flavors were "just right" I didn't even have to add any extra soy sauce!! Usually I do.
