Veggie-Packed Fried Rice + Giveaway

Veggie Fried Rice2

You all know I love using up leftovers in new and creative ways. The beauty of fried rice is that is the ultimate “use up all the veggie scraps in your fridge” meal. Just make sure everything is cut to approximately the same size and shape so that it cooks evenly, and you’re good to go. I’m now realizing I should have used up the collard greens in my refrigerator for this fried rice, because it’s looking limp and past its prime. I guess tonight’s soup is going to have some thinly sliced collards mixed in!

Psst: Don’t miss the cookbook giveaway after the recipe!
