READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Sonya01

Fried rice is always a great way to use up leftovers - vary this Thai version depending on what's in your fridge. Notes & tips Kaffir lime leaves and Thai basil are from some supermarkets and greengrocers. Tamari is a type of soy sauce usually made without wheat - look for gluten-free tamari at health food shops and some supermarkets.

We love fried rice, and this did not disappoint! I made this delicious dish exactly as directed, although I omitted the turkey, since I was planning this to accompany an asian chicken dish, providing both rice and veggies in one go! It did indeed go very well, you could sub any meat for the turkey (bacon would be nice), or, have it as a vegetarian dish! Simple and full of flavour, thank you for a very much enjoyed supper, Sonya!
