Swede Fried Rice was inspired one day when left over rice in the fridge looked unappetising. A thought came to jaunty it up with swede and red onion. Colour and flavour burst forwards.
Swede is a root vegetable grown and endures all over the world. It’s a good source of dietary fibre and assist with restoring microflora.
