Fried Harvey

This simple fare (delicious, hearty and addictive) was a special offered at a former Denny's restaurant (the chain) in Venice, California, that had been taken over by a hippies in the 1970s.

1/2 cup diced onion
1 cup diced zucchini or other squash
2 cups spinach
1/2 cup diced green bell pepper
1/2 cup diced red, orange or yellow bell pepper
1/4 cup diced celery
2 T vegetable oil
2 to 4 cups cooked rice
1 raw egg, slightly beaten
1/2 cup toasted cashews or almonds
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/4 cup scallions, thinly sliced, green part only

Optional: Soy sauce, sliced mushrooms, diced carrots, chopped broccoli, or oter vegetables

Preparing the Fried Harvey:
Sauté onion, zucchini, spinach, peppers and celery lightly in oil.

In a separate pan, heat vegetable oil and add cooked rice. Scramble egg into rice and add vegetables. If using soy sauce, add now and mix. Add the nuts and cheese over the top. Cover for a few minutes on low heat until cheese melts. Sprinkle sliced scallions over the top.

Serves 4
