Fried Rice

i've seen a couple pins on pinterest lately for fried rice and chicken lo mein.  totally gave me a craving for chinese food.  i decided to give the fried rice a try.

again, crappy picture from my phone, but the flavor/taste was awesome.  i grilled some chicken and made my favorite teriyaki sauce (check out my post Teriyaki Tuesday for the recipe!) to pour over it.  steamed some broccoli. and served it up with fried rice.  the flavors worked very well together and satisfied my chinese food craving, although the chicken lo mein is still on my list to try.

Fried Rice
3 cups cooked white rice (day old or leftover rice works best!)
3 Tbsp sesame oil
1 c frozen peas and carrots (thawed)
1 small onion, chopped
2 tsp minced garlic
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 c soy sauce
On medium high heat, heat the oil in a large skillet or wok.  Add the peas/carrots mix, onion and garlic. Stir fry until tender. Lower the heat to medium low and push the mixture off to one side, then pour your eggs on the other side of skillet and stir fry until scrambled. Now add the rice and soy sauce and blend all together well. Stir fry until thoroughly heated.
i decided when making this to not make any healthy alterations.  i used good old white rice and 2 whole eggs, rather than substituting brown rice and 4 egg whites.  and maybe you can tell from the picture, but i topped the rice off with some of the chopped green onions i had leftover from the salad i had made a few nights before.  and to give credit where credit is due, here is the website i got this recipe from:
