Even though we still have a week before we set off to the Italian coast, I’ve been hesitant to do any sort of proper food shop so we can try and use up bits we have to try and avoid any waste next week. I might have stopped food shopping a little too early though but that lead to this recipe being created! The key to any fried rice? Pre-cooking and chilling the rice before hand. I like to cook mine a day ahead then get it out the fridge the following day when it’s time to cook. It’s not the prettiest of dishes but this a wonderful addition to chicken or fish.
