If you are anything like me you always end up cooking too much rice and end up with some left over.
I hate wasting food and this healthy mushroom fried rice is the perfect recipe for using up the leftovers.
This recipe is very easily customized. Feel free to swap out any of the vegetables for whatever you have in your fridge. Just about anything would work.
This healthy mushroom fried rice makes a great lunch and is equally as good for dinner. It comes together very quickly and can easily be doubled or tripled to accommodate more people.
