Swede Fried Rice

by Edward Daniel

Swede fried rice is a dish I made perchance. I was experimenting. I had swede and wanted to see what the texture might be like with softening them for a couple of days in water. The idea of mixing with rice came to me as I had some left over steamed rice in the fridge. Actually, I really like the combination and this makes an awfully nice side dish.
