This turned out to be a tasty dish. I sautéed some leftover rice in olive oil with garlic, bell pepper, oven-roasted plum tomatoes, salt, pepper and herbes de Provence, then added shreds of cooked egg, just as one would if making Asian-style fried rice. It’s garnished with grated Romano.


I love using leftovers!

I wasn’t the first to think this up. Looking online, I see several “Mediterranean Fried Rice” recipes (like this one from Kitchen Frau), but they mostly use meat rather than eggs. Artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes from a jar seem to be popular ingredients for this delectable comfort food with Flavors of the Sun.
