vaguely thai fried rice

I was going to make that yummy thai green papaya salad, but the Asian grocery didn't have green papaya. I picked up these sour green mangoes instead, but the texture just isn't the same. I'm coming up with some creative recipes to use up the ingredients I bought for the green papaya salad.

2 cups Rice cooked with a handful of fresh basil
1 mango
2 cups chopped fresh green beans
6 cherry tomatoes
2 tbsp (or more!) soy sauce
cayenne to taste
just enough oil to coat your pan

First I cooked my rice with a handful of fresh basil in the pot. Just trying to use up my basil before it goes bad, but it makes for tasty rice! Then in a seperate pan I very lightly sauteed the green beans, mango and tomatoes for about five minutes. I turned off the heat, added the cayenne and soy sauce. I let that sit for a few minutes for the flavors to mingle a bit. Then put the rice in the pan, mix and turn on the heat. Fry until things just start to brown, maybe about 10-15 minutes. yum yum!
