Turn a carton of uneaten rice into a quick, tasty dinner.

Jews love Chinese food. It's well-documented, and even the subject of a paper I wrote in college (I got an A-). But here's another thing we love: leftovers. And the two often go hand in hand: who hasn't ended up with a cardboard carton of white rice in the fridge after indulging in some beef lo mein or General Tso's chicken?
