This dish is a great way to finish off cold leftover rice, which holds its shape better than freshly cooked rice does.

    Super-easy and quick recipe. I added extra carrots, but didn't use the vinegar though, and it still was really tasty. Really suggest this for light dinner or lunch, not something I would serve to guests.
