    Recipe Tips

    For faster prep, use 4 cups of leftover rice, and replace the celery and carrots with 1 cup of frozen peas and carrots.

    Cook rice with broth instead of water, for a more savory dish.

    For more flavor, substitute sesame oil for vegetable oil.

    Substitute ham with cooked shrimp or chopped chicken, if that’s what you have on hand.
