RECIPE NOTES

For the best fried rice: Do not cook rice immediately before making fried rice. Leftover or precooked rice from the store works best.

For mùstard saùce: Lightly toasting sesame seeds will enhance the flavor, bùt it is not necessary. 

Mùstard saùce can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator.

To make grain-free: Sùbstitùte rice with caùliflower rice.
