    This fried rice recipe uses leftover brown rice. Feel free to use cooked white rice, but make sure it's cold before making this dish. With rice, chicken, peas, peppers and onions, it's a good square meal.

    Nasi Goreng is a well known Indonesian fried rice dish. It can be enjoyed on its own or as a base for a larger meal. It's very easy to make and highly satisfying.

    A quick and easy dish! Can also be made with pasta - both are really tasty. This is a great way to use up leftover rice if you don't have the quick pre-steamed wok rice to hand, and you can adjust the seasonings to taste - add additional veg, if desired.

    This is something my sister just sort of rustled up with leftover chicken and whatever else we had in the fridge. It's very versatile and tastes just like chicken fried rice that you would order in.

    This Thai chicken fried rice is deliciously spicy, but if you prefer your food milder, use less chillies. It's a great way of using up leftover rice. The star of the dish is the Thai sweet basil, it has a completely different flavour to Italian basil.
