Crab & Vegetable Fried Rice

Crab & Vegetable Fried rice is a fast and delicious alternative to eating out!

It is cheaper, possibly faster and you get to choose exactly what ingredients you put in it.

We love Chinese food, but eating out gets very expensive – so we develop our own recipes so we can eat the same delicious food at home AND we get to share our recipes with you!

This crab & vegetable fried rice doesn’t require fresh crab – and all that time-consuming crab preparation (if you have crab already cooked and prepped then feel free to use it here-otherwise a couple of cans of crab work wonders. Feel free to experiment with vegetables too – there are so many delicious options out there so choose whatever your family likes best!
