Fried rice is quick and easy to make at home.  It is a great way to clean out the refrigerator using whatever vegetables you have on hand and is a satisfying meatless entree.  In this recipe I use carrots, shiitake mushrooms and peas but you can add broccoli, peppers, beans, corn, anything you like.  I always have Trader Joe’s frozen brown rice on hand so I just warm it up and use that for the rice.  This recipe will serve 3 as an entree or 6 as a side dish.

Chop 6 green onions using white and light green parts.
Dice 3 peeled carrots.
Dice 6 shiitake mushroom caps.
Lightly oil a saute pan and scramble 3 eggs.
Set aside.
Heat 2 Tbsp olive oil in a wok or large saute pan over medium high heat.
Add 4 cups of cooked brown rice, carrots, 
mushrooms and 1 cup of peas.
Saute for 5 minutes stirring occasionally.
Add 4 Tbsp soy sauce and saute for another 5 minutes.
Stir in the scrambles eggs breaking them up as you combine.
Stir in the green onions and remove from heat.
Enjoy!
