There’s no better meal to make somethin’ out of nothin’ than fried rice. This dish is super convenient, easy, and a great way to get creative and use what you have on hand as a way to save money. 

Fried Rice
6 servings, 40 minutes

  • 4 cups cooked white rice
  • 1 medium yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 large carrot, sliced
  • 1, 8 oz. package of mushrooms, sliced
  • 5 cloves of garlic confit
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 pack of cooked bacon
  • 1 bunch of kale, washed and sliced
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tbsp coconut aminos
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste
  • Cilantro, garnish
  • Lime, garnish


  1. You will need 4 cups of cooked rice for this recipe. Then choose whatever leftover protein you have. I used a whole package of cooked and diced bacon.
  2. Crack the 3 eggs into a bowl, whisk and set aside.
  3. In a large pan, melt 1 stick of butter and turn on medium heat.
  4. Add your diced yellow onion and carrots and begin to sauté. After about 3-5 minutes, add the mushrooms and cook down. Then add about 5 cloves of garlic confit and bacon.
  5. Once the vegetables have cooked down, add the 4 cups of cooked rice to the pan and mix.
  6. Add the kale and mix in.
  7. Once the veggies have cooked evenly, push the mixture to one side and create a small “bowl’ and add in the eggs. Mix eggs so they start to scramble.
  8. Then drizzle about 2 tablespoons of coconut aminos onto the fried rice and continue mixing. Once the egg is cooked, turn off the heat.
  9. Serve in bowls and garnish with cilantro and squeeze with lime if desired.


  • This recipe is dedicated to giving new life to those ingredients that are about to go bad or whatever leftovers you may have. Think broccoli, green onions, carrots, peas – pretty much anything you have on hand.
  • Keep it vegetarian or add in the desired protein option like chicken, shrimp, steak, or bacon.
  • You can use soy sauce or tamari as an alternative to coconut aminos.
  • If making or using garlic confit, make sure to keep it refrigerated after preparing and use within 7 days. (See this USDA article for more.)
