This is my absolute FAVORITE way to use leftover rice & the only way I eat egg drop soup (I’m weird and don’t like it any other way.)
1 cup of leftover rice (about 2/3 of a standard small takeaway container)
1 cup of egg drop soup (my local place actually has a chicken corn egg drop soup, that’s what I like with this)
1 medium sweet potato grated
1 cup of chopped meat protein (smoked sausage, ground beef or turkey, etc. optional – I have made it without and it’s just as yummy!)
This yields about 3 servings.
Step 1: Peel and grate potato & chop meat if using.
Step 2: Heat olive oil in skillet, medium-high. Add potato & meat. Let cook, stirring occasionally, for about 2-3 minutes.
Step 3: Add rice and pour soup over everything. Stir well.
Step 4: Let cook 3-4 minutes, until some of the liquid has evaporated and the consistency is like a rice casserole.
Step 5: Eat!
