Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups uncooked white rice
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

Instructions

  • Cook your rice however you usually prep it. Or, if you have leftover rice, take that out of the fridge and warm it up a bit to get it soft.
  • In a large skillet, cook your eggs (break them apart like scrambled eggs), corn, peas and onions in vegetable oil until the onions are translucent. Add in a couple pinches of salt and pepper. If you have meats in your fried rice, you can cook them with this step. Just make sure they're small cube/bite-size pieces to keep the size of the ingredients relatively the same.
  • Add in the rice. Keep folding it with the veggies until well-combined. If your rice is hard (from the fridge), try to let it sit in the warm skillet for a little bit and then break it up. You want to make sure there are no big lumps of rice.
  • Pour the soy sauce over the rice. You might want to do this slowly in case it gets too salty for you or in case the rice doesn't soak up all the soy sauce (at this point, it would mean you need more rice). I'd pour it in 1 circle around the skillet at a time and then mix it altogether and see if there is any rice that's still white.
  • Continue mixing it together until all incorporated and you see no white rice kernels. Sprinkle pepper on top and mix together one last time. Taste it to make sure it's to your liking.
  • Serve hot and enjoy!
