Colourful Vegetables Fried Rice

Hmm it has been a long time I last posted on my fried rice creations. I must live up to my Queen of Fried Rice title bestowed by boo_licious LOL!

I made a very healthy version recently, using loads of vegetables and some eggs cooked with olive oil. By the time I finish chopping and dicing the vegetables, I noticed they were so colourful, hence the name of the fried rice was conjured. From the photo below, you can see I've used carrot, cauliflower, brocolli, green capsicum, yellow capsicumm, french beans, celery and chopped garlic.

To cook my version, first fry a couple of eggs with some olive oil till slightly set. Dish up and set aside. In the same wok, pour in more olive oil and add in garlic when its heated. Stir till fragrant before dishing in the vegetables. Add some salt and mix well.

Pour in cooked rice, I've used half portion of white and brown rice each, and quickly stir to mix. Season with some soy sauce and pepper before mixing in the eggs. Give it some stirs before dishing out.

I'm very happy to see my boiboi eating up the rice happily without any complaint. It has never been so easy to convince him to eat his cauliflowers or brocollis!!! He scooped one tiny brocolli floret and told me "Ohhh mummy, this is so cute... baby brocolli." Awww man... my boiboi digs anything that come in "baby" version which he thinks it's for (big) baby like him! So this is another version of rice where you can "hide" stuff to kid the children.

Note: It's best to use overnight cooked rice that have been kept in the fridge. I usually use the rice straight from the fridge. Otherwise, I find them a bit too sticky to my liking.

replace the olive oil with lard and chuck in some butter too. sprinkle some fried shallots and chilli padi.

then to make it healthier, add some cilantro at the end.

Agree with PP. Rainbow Fried Rice sounds more fun.
