Veggie Fried Rice
Servings: 4 Start to Finish 30 mins


  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 12 ounce bunch fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces (2 cups)
  • 2 scallions, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 3 cups chilled, cooked brown rice
  • 3/4 cup frozen peas
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

Make It

1. Heat the canola oil over medium-high heat in a large nonstick skillet. Add the asparagus to the skillet. Saute for 1 minute (3 minutes if asparagus is thick). Add the scallions, ginger, and garlic; saute until the asparagus is just tender, about 2 minutes more.

2. Add the rice and peas to the skillet, breaking up rice as you stir. Stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes or until the rice is heated through. Reduce heat to medium.

3. Make a well in the center of the rice and pour in the eggs. As the eggs begin to cook, stir them into the rice until the egg is thoroughly incorporated. Remove from heat. Stir in soy sauce. Makes 4 servings.
