Quick Egg and Veggie Fried Rice
Everyone needs a fried rice recipe in his or her repertoire because it's great for using up leftovers. When you don't have any meat in the fridge or freezer, you'll likely have eggs on hand to turn what's normally a side dish into this complete meal.

Total time 25 minutes
Portion size 4 servings
2 tbsp (30 mL) vegetable oil
3 green onions, thinly sliced (light and dark green parts separated)
1-1/2 cups (375 mL) sliced stemmed mushrooms, such as shiitake or cremini
1 carrot, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp (15 mL) minced fresh ginger
5 cups (1.25 L) cold cooked rice
1/2 cup (125 mL) frozen peas
4 eggs, beaten
2 tbsp (30 mL) sodium-reduced soy sauce
1 tbsp (15 mL) oyster sauce
2 tsp (10 mL) Sriracha, or other Asian chili sauce
1 tsp (5 mL) sesame oil
In a wok or large nonstick skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat; stir-fry light green parts of green onions until softened, about 1 minute.
Add mushrooms, carrot, garlic, and ginger; cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes.
