Let's talk leftovers. Don't toss that leftover rice! Fried rice is a fantastic way to use up leftovers and scraps and in fact, it's best when made with cold, leftover rice. The hardest part of making fried rice is the chopping involved, and if you can enlist your kids to help, it's a no brainer.
This lunch has fried rice made with ham (not deli ham), carrots, broccoli and chives. You can interchange scallions and chives for this recipe, and of course you can use chicken or any other meat in place of the ham. Here's what to do:
Heat avocado oil on medium high heat in a frying pan and add the veggies. Any veggies will do! Bell peppers, zucchini, broccoli, cauliflower, peas, etc. After about two minutes, add the rice and stir to combine so that the oil is evenly distributed. Add the ham (or turkey, or beef, or any sliced meat) and mix thoroughly. The dish is finished in a matter of minutes!
This lunch also features raspberries, kiwi and banana oat blueberry bread. Check back to Allergy Safe Lunch #7 for that recipe.
