Ella’s gorgeous super veggie fried rice photo from her cookbook…
…notice she has a nice helping of sriracha on top. I would normally LOVE hot sauce, but the whole third trimester thing has me pushing aside all my fave spicy foods. Hello heartburn.

Super Veggie Fried Rice
I have been making a lot of rice recipe during quarantine. I started using my Instapot to make fluffy, amazing rice in minutes. So when I saw this recipe I was super excited to both try it and share it with you guys!
It is a cozy rice dish filled with rainbow-colored veggies. Perfect for that ‘at-home-takeout’ vibe.
This recipe shows up in the 20-30 minutes section of Ella’s new cookbook.
Watch me make it on Instagram IGTV!
Happy skillet Ahead!…
I had to add the peas separately because my husband hates them. I love them! More peas for me!
Ella says about this recipe…
“This and the Creamy kale and mushroom salad (page 99) are the two recipes Matt and I make the most at home. I’ve been making them almost every week for the past year. I always make extra rice when I’m cooking one of our stews or curries so that I can throw this together the next day. I love it with lots of sriracha.”– Ella, on her Super Veggie Fried Rice
Yes, please! This sounds like something I should be doing more of since I always have leftover rice. So excited to have this idea in my head now! And while Ella’s exact recipe looks ah-mazing, I would guess that she would be totally in favor of using whatever veggies you may have on hand if need be. But I’m definitely trying this recipe as is very soon!….
