I’m back with yet another quick and tasty way to revamp your leftover rice. This time round I chose to use broccoli and sausage. For the sausages, I removed the casings to use the sausage meat.
The beauty of leftover rice is that you can use just about anything you have on hand to spruce it up, from eggs to peas to even pineapple and cashews.
In a wok,add some little oil since the sausage meat is already greasy. Then add the onions and sausage meat.Keep stirring until the sausage meat starts to brown around the edges.
Once the meat is almost cooked,add the minced garlic and stir.
Add the broccoli florets. Broccoli cooks pretty fast, just keep stirring around until the broccoli is firm to the bite but cooked. The green of the broccoli should pop.
Now we are ready to add our leftover rice, for my case it was steamed white rice.
Combine to get the rice warmed up then drizzle over some soy sauce, because what is fried rice without a dash of soy sauce?
Taste for seasoning then adjust accordingly. I prefer to salt after I’ve added soy sauce. Soy sauce has some amount of sodium so I don’t want to run the risk of being heavy handed with the salt. Additionally when working with processed meats like sausage which also have quite an amount of sodium it’s best to salt afterwards.
I squeezed the juice of half a lemon to cut through all the flavours.
Serve and enjoy.

That looks delicious. Never revamped my leftover rice. I just reboil it and have it with tea. Will sure try this, can it work with fresh boiled rice? Plus the recipe is so simple!
Interesting. Once you start revamping you’ll never go back to reboiling. Yes fresh rice would do, however leftover cold rice is ideal.
Simple and delicious
