FRIED RICE (NOT!) Thats what my kids call this!! I got this recipe from my friend Bev, and it is a quick and easy side dish, that can be padded out with a few more veggies. I would suggest that you dont "muck around" with this too much the first time you make it, as I have tried to be too clever and it hasnt worked out as well!!! having said that, I have to say I usually add garlic and ginger, and I am sure you have a favorite ingredient you would like to add :)

What a great recipe mummamills. So quick and easy to make and it tasted wonderful. I was unsure about the ketchup but it worked great, the flavor was excellent. We loved this dish. I used long grain rice and for vegetables I added sweet and hot red chilies, sweet onion, frozen peas and garnished with green onions. Into my keeper box this goes, thanks so much for sharing.
