Fried rice with oyster mushrooms

Fried rice is one of the best ideas for leftovers – not only veggies, but of course mostly for leftover rice. Maybe we're on the same team here: Never ever am I measuring the right amount of pasta, potatoes or rice that I actually need but always cook too much. At the same time, I refuse to use any helpful tools for this, but if you think about it... it's not that bad if you just know what to do with those leftovers, so there we are at fried rice again.

If you realize that you've cooked too much rice, then directly spread the leftovers on a baking sheet and let it cool down and dry on it. This way, the rice will fry even better (but don't worry, if you skipped this step – your fried rice will still be great, of course). Besides rice, feel free to also look around in your kitchen and find some vegetables that need to go. Better limit yourself to a maximum of a handful or different vegetables that pair well instead of using all you can find. This recipe is a real basic option that concentrates on a few ingredients and seasonings such as soy sauce, mirin, salt, and pepper. You can also experiment more with seasoning to taste and add some chili for example, if you like it spicy.
