Let’s start by scrambling 2 eggs over medium heat…

Once your eggs have scrambled, transfer them to a plate and heat a couple tablespoons of stir-fry oil in your pan.

Over medium heat sauté 1 diced white onion and 1 chopped carrot.

Once your veggies have softened throw in 1 clove of minced garlic…

And a few handfuls of baby kale.

Don’t be afraid to fill your pan with kale, it will all cook down!

After your kale has cooked for a few minutes, add 2 cups of cooked rice.

Day old, cold rice works the best for fried rice!

Stir your rice into your veggies and oil, then add a few tablespoons of soy sauce to the rice…

Don’t forget about your scrambled egg!

Healthy comfort food at it’s finest!

Wish me luck and enjoy!
