Chinese vegetable fried rice

Chinese-style vegetable fried rice is an easy and tasty side dish to serve with Asian-style vegetable and tofu dishes. It’s a great way to use up leftover brown rice, too. On the rare occasions when my family gets Chinese take-out, there’s always a lot of leftover rice, and this is usually the way it gets repurposed!
