Fried rice is generally quick to make anyway - but this genius little tip will let you go from nothin' to very much somethin' in only a few minutes.
Fried rice doesn’t work with fresh warm rice, and is best made with cold rice from the day before. But when you don’t have any, you can use one of those packs of pre-cooked rice that you would normally heat in the microwaveable for 90 seconds.
So when you get to the part where you would add the cold rice - bust open a pack and use the rice in it (without heating first) and then continue as normal to finish the rice.
One 7.5 ounce pack along with a bunch of vegetables, chicken, shrimp or whatever else you like will make enough fried rice for 2.
