Sausage & Peas Fried Rice - 香肠豌豆炒饭

We had delicious Korean food (Soondubu and seafood pancake) at Jang Su Jang in Santa Clara the other day and brought home the only food that was left - rice.

As there was just about one serving of leftover rice, the best way to go was to bulk it up, make fried rice and turn it to almost two servings of food.

Other than grilling these sausages, they can also be sliced to smaller pieces, sauteed with vegetables as a side-dish e.g. Spicy Sausage with Chard or perhaps add this side to pasta e.g. Sausage and Kale Pasta for a one-dish meal. If you prefer the carbs-of-the-day to be rice, then throw in some veggies for one-dish fried rice.
