sriracha fried rice egg bowl.

I really love cooking elaborate dinners, but most weeknights, it's not in the cards. By the time I get home from work I'm starving and looking for something quick and easy to make so I can focus on the important things, like reality television.

When I did my sister trip to Chicago last year, Mer and I had a delicious brunch at Sable and I fell in love with their Ginger-Scallion Brown Fried Rice and Eggs. Although my version is slightly different, it makes for a quick, filling (and healthy) option for weeknights.

What you do (super serious directions):

  • If I have them on hand, I'll cut up some sweet potatoes, drizzle them with olive oil/season with salt and pepper and roast at 400 degrees for 20-30 minutes (flipping them once halfway). 
  • As they finish baking, I cook up some Trader Joe's frozen vegetable fried rice (adding some ginger) and fry an egg in some butter. 
  • Once everything is hot and ready, I'll assemble the bowl and drizzle sriracha and then...dinner is served!
