Market Vegetable Fried Rice

Comforting thing is that with fried rice, almost anything goes. We created this recipe specifically to fit vegetables we found at the Indy Winter Farmer’s Market (bok choy and carrots from Harvestland Farm and turnips from Full Hand Farm), but you can adapt this to whatever is seasonal in your area or happens to be in your refrigerator. Day old rice works best here, so make sure to cook some up beforehand.
