Fried rice has the best texture when prepared with cold cooked rice, making it an ideal use for leftovers. Tiny rounds of thinly sliced green beans add flecks of color and crunch.

How to Make It

Step 1

Break up rice with hands to remove large clumps, if necessary.

Step 2

Heat a 14-inch wok over high heat. Add canola oil to wok, swirling to coat. Add 1 1/2 cups onion and garlic to wok; stir-fry 1 minute or until onion begins to brown. Add beans and ham; stir-fry 2 minutes or until ham begins to brown.

Step 3

Reduce heat to medium-high. Add cold rice to wok; stir-fry 2 minutes. Stir in soy sauce, sesame oil, and black pepper. Push rice mixture up sides of wok. Pour eggs in open space in center of wok; cook 30 seconds or until set, stirring to scramble. Gently stir scrambled eggs into rice mixture. Sprinkle with green onions.
