You basically throw everything in a giant pot or a wok, stir, and then eat. You can use any kind of rice, including cauliflower rice. You can make your own by putting cauliflower florets in a food processor or use store bought organic ones.
You can serve the fried rice with a hot sauce of your choice. Kid love ketchup on it.
You can also serve with fresh lettuce leaves to use it as a wrap.You can also leave out the eggs and make it truly vegetarian.

Secret to Great Stir Frying
The secret to great stir frying is having everything ready before you turn on the stove. You can even have them lined up in order. Get all your vegetables, washed and chopped on a platter, eggs cracked and beaten and in a small bowl and the sauce all mixed or handy by the stove. Don’t over cook the veggies or rice. Add the sauce when they are about 3/4 cooked. Once you start cooking, it will go fast and it will make your life easier with less clean up and dishes, and you’ll avoid having soggy fried rice.
