Fried Rice with Carrots and Peas

I love to prepare this dish anytime I have leftover rice although I have been known to make rice just for this.  The ingredients are easily modified to fit your family’s personal preferences and mashed tofu can be added to mimic the eggs normally fond in restaurant prepared dishes. We have great fun trying to eat this with chopsticks.


  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 bunch of scallions, diced
  • ½ tspn ground fresh ginger
  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 3 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • Soy sauce to taste


  1. Water sauté garlic, scallions, ginger and carrots in a large non-stick wok, until tender.
  2. Add cooked brown rice and peas.  (Crumbled tofu can also be added if desired.)  Stir and heat.
  3. Add soy sauce to taste.  Serve immediately.
