Craving takeout, but not the price? Try Ling Ling frozen fried rice for dinner!
I love takeout, but with our budget, we only go out to eat about once a month. When I’m craving something, I’ve just learned to make it myself. Having a dozen or so MYO takeout recipes on hand is essential! While I can make my own fried rice, I’ve truly fallen in love with the Ling Ling line of frozen fried rices. There are quite a few varieties, but the Chinese-Style Vegetable or Thai-Style Chicken are the favorites.
Each box comes with two packets of rice that can be heated in a wok or in the microwave. We’ve found that our house of 5 (plus my hungry baby belly) needs two packets of rice, or one whole box. It’s a pretty hearty meal, but for a super hungry crowd, I serve with teriyaki grilled chicken and roasted broccoli. The Ling Ling potstickers are SO good, also.
I like to use my wok to get those extra crispy bits of rice, just like our favorite Chinese restaurant. The microwave method is quick and easy, too. We love the Chinese-Style Vegetable because it has veggies we actually like in it–not a bunch of random fillers. Edamame is our favorite! With the baby coming in less than 5 weeks (eeek!), it’s great to have items like this in the freezer for easy dinners.
Making your own takeout at home allows you to save money, plus you can spend quality time with the family around the table. I love that I don’t have to question the ingredients of our meal, too! For a fun Family Friday, whip up some fried rice and potstickers, then pick a movie or game to all play together. It’s a great way to unwind as a family.
