Got leftover rice in the fridge? Turn it into FRIED RICE! Fried rice is so incredibly versatile – a great way to use up any leftovers, transforming them into a completely new dish.
Leftover rice that has been in the fridge overnight is the perfect medium for making fried rice. It is slightly drier and less sticky than freshly steamed rice which means that when you stir-fry the leftover rice, each grain gets a chance to be properly seasoned.
