I used to hate sesame oil. I still gag when I smell it straight out of the bottle. However, it goes really nicely in this dish. This is meatless, which you know makes me happy!
2 tsp. sesame oil
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
1 carrot, peeled and shredded
1 small green pepper, chopped
4 oz. mushrooms, sliced (or 1 can, drained)
4 servings cooked brown rice
1 cup frozen peas
3 Tbsp. reduced sodium soy sauce
2 eggs, beaten (omit eggs to make it vegan)
black pepper to taste
In a large skillet, cook the carrots, green pepper, mushrooms, ginger, and garlic in the oil for a couple of minutes. Add the rice, peas, and soy sauce and combine. Push rice mixture to side of skillet, and cook eggs in other side. Mix the eggs into the rice mixture.
