  • 3 cups cooked jasmine rice
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • ¼ large Vidalia onion chopped
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • 1 cup frozen peas and carrots
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoon soy sauce
  • green onions
  • cilantro optional


  • In a large skillet or wok, preheat oil over medium heat and add onion and garlic. Cook until onions are soft, about 2-3 minutes. Stir occasionally to keep the garlic from burning.
  • Add peas and carrots and cook until partially thawed, 1-2 minutes.
  • Turn the heat up to medium high and add cooked rice. Cook for another 2-3 minutes until rice is nice and hot and starts to brown. Reduce heat and push rice to the sides of the pan, making a hole for the eggs.
  • Crack the eggs into the middle of the pan and scramble. Once eggs are cooked, stir them into the rice.
  • Mix soy sauce and sesame oil together and pour over rice. Stir until rice is evenly coated with sauce.
  • Top with chopped green onions and/or cilantro (optional).
