Ayamase Fried Rice

The initial plan was to make native rice, but I changed course and made fried rice inspired Ofada rice something something. I was at loss as to what to name it. But here we are.

Thanks to bulk prepping, I pulled out frozen mixed vegetables from the freezer, as well as frozen boiled ayamase pepper. I shared a little while ago how I bulk buy vegetables chop and freeze, as a money saving technique. See here So because I had a lot of things prepped I just went straight to cooking.
