Vegetable Fried Rice – Yasai Chahan

At first I didn’t want to have another fried rice recipe on my blog (this is the 3rd one) but then saw no reason why there shouldn’t be since it’s always on my repertoire. Fried rice is the perfect dish when you have leftovers! Plus, everyone loves fried rice and it can be used either as a side or a main. It’s colorful, tasty and comforting, and brings back memories of going to the Chinese buffet with your family as a kid, when you thought beef and broccoli was the best thing on the planet!
