One pot of rice. Forty minutes of Sunday prep. Two recipes ready in under 40 minutes, to carry you through the week.
A Pot of Rice
Cook the pancetta and vegetables for the fried rice.
Prepare burrito bowls as directed, with one exception: instead of 1 cup of rice and 2 cups water, cook 2 cups of rice in 4 cups of water. That will give you enough leftover rice to make tomorrow’s fried rice.
New Prep Time: 10 minutes (unchanged)
New Cook Time: 45 minutes, to account for the additional rice
Cook the eggs as directed in the fried rice recipe with 1/2 teaspoon canola oil (since you are starting from a dry wok instead of using the oil left behind by the pancetta and vegetables). Add the cooked pancetta, vegetables and leftover rice and cook until heated through. Stir in the sesame oil and soy sauce before serving.
New Prep Time: 5 minutes
New Cook Time: 35 minutes
Use any remaining rice to make another round of burrito bowls. Alternatively, make something simple like grilled cheese.
