making this veggie fried rice is a WOK in the park! Whenever we order Indian, Chinese, or Thai food, we never eat the plain rice that accompanies the main meal. I use that leftover rice and whatever veggies I have in the fridge to pull this yummy dinner together in less than 10 min.  This really is the best and easiest fried rice you can ever make! Be sure and save this recipe now and tag me when you make it!
