Fried rice with walnuts, onion and chives

An unexpected day at home, and a craving for something extra for lunch! Well, the first step is to look through the fridge. I found some left over cooked rice and decided it could be a good start for something. With some extra virgin olive oil, a couple of chive boats, the half of an onion and an almost empty box of walnuts, and soon my lunch was finished.
First I fried the chive and the onion in the olive oil, after a while I added half of the walnuts and the rice. The rest of the walnuts I fried in a corner of the frying pan to use for garniture. Eating alone really doesn't mean that the food shall look just plain! With a piece of bread and a few pieces of parma ham I could have a feast together with my book.
I am reading Dervla Murphy's One Foot in Laos. I visited Laos myself a few years ago and fell in love with the sticky rice which were served to all meals. My fried rice was not sticky, but good as well.

Your fotos look delicious. But I like the dish you serve the rice. Is it home made too? It looks like my home made pottery.

Best regards

Lovely photos! That looks like the kind of lunch I throw together! By the way, thanks again for your help on Goro. I'm going to attempt it the next time I'm in Norge for the holidays.

Nice to see a blog post on food. I like to eat a phyto-estrogen diet - high in green plants etc.
