“Basic, quick and easy. A simple way to use up leftover rice (it will be much better made with cold rice, trust me.) Make it a main dish by adding 1 lb cooked chicken or shrimp.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; warm pan over medium-high heat. Add eggs; tilt pan so that eggs cover bottom.
  2. When eggs start to set, break them up into pieces with a heat-proof spatula or wooden spoon. Cook until eggs are cooked through, about 1 minute more; remove eggs from skillet and set aside.
  3. Off heat, coat same skillet with more cooking spray; set over medium-high heat. Add carrots. Reserve 2 tablespoons scallions and add remainder to skillet; sauté until carrots are crisp-tender, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Stir in cooked rice, peas and soy sauce; cook until heated through, stirring once or twice, about 1 minute. Gently stir in cooked egg and remaining scallions; heat through.
  5. Yields about 3/4 cups per serving. (Yield will change if protein is added.).
