Curry Fried Rice As Made By Liz Murphy

This recipe is a wonderful example of using what you already have in your fridge; it's the perfect way to transform leftover rice and whatever veggies you have on hand. I was inspired by my favorite local Thai restaurant to add the fabulous flavors of curry and turmeric to classic fried rice. I used to love ordering their curry fried rice, but wanted to make a vegan version. This dish is incredibly simple and makes a delicious quick meal.
