Bonus weekend recipe: Fried rice

To go with the lemongrass beef, I fried a little broccoli and carrot with brown rice left over from yesterday. Here's a basic recipe for fried rice, and you can substitute different veggies for the ones I used. I like to pass a little hot chili sauce on the side for this one. (Otherwise, I hate to admit, it tastes a little dull.)

Vegetable fried rice

1/8 cup peanut or canola oil

1/2 cup broccoli florets

1/2 cup sliced carrot (about 1 medium carrot)

1/2 cup sliced green onions
2 cups cooked brown rice

1 egg, beaten

1 tablespoon soy sauce

Heat the oil on high heat. Add the broccoli and carrot and cook, stirring frequently, about 4 minutes. Add the rice and heat through. Turn the heat down to medium, add the beaten egg, green onion, and soy sauce, and cook until the egg sets.
