Description

Broccoli represents prosperity for Chinese New Year celebrations. We have combined it here with carrots, frozen peas and scallions for our version of fried rice, which contains more vitamin-packed veggies than usual.

Ingredients

3 tablespoons
soy sauce
2 tablespoons
chili-garlic sauce
5 tablespoons
sesame oil
2  
eggs
1  
broccoli
2  
carrots
1 bunch
scallions
3 cups
brown rice
1 cup
frozen peas
   
salt

Instructions

Note on Rice: We like brown jasmine rice, which is fragrant, in this recipe. Use any rice that you like and have on hand.

In a small bowl combine the tamari, chili-garlic sauce and 1 tablespoon of the sesame oil; set aside.

Heat 2 tablespoons of the remaining sesame oil in a large, wide nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add the eggs and a pinch of salt and cook until the eggs just set; remove to a plate.

Wipe out the skillet with paper towels and return to the stove over medium-high heat. Add the remaining sesame oil, the broccoli and a pinch of salt and cook, tossing often, until starting to soften, 2 minutes. Add the carrots and half of the scallions and continue to cook, tossing, until the vegetables are just cooked and crisp-tender, another 1 to 2 minutes. Add the rice and the frozen peas and cook, tossing gently, for another minute. Add the eggs and the tamari-chili garlic mixture to the rice and toss gently to coat, cooking for another minute. Sprinkle with the remaining scallions to serve.
