  • 1 1/2 teaspoons + 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 2 eggs, whisked together

  • 1 small white onion, finely chopped

  • 2 medium carrots, finely chopped

  • 2 cups additional veggies, cut into very small pieces for quick cooking, options include snow peas, asparagus, broccoli, cabbage, bell pepper, and/or fresh or frozen peas

  • Exotic Choice Fried Rice Spice

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon grated or finely minced fresh ginger

  • 2 large cloves garlic, pressed or minced

  • Pinch of red pepper flakes

  • 2 cups cooked brown rice

  • 3 onions, chopped


  • Beforehand make sure that all of your ingredients are prepped. I’m suggesting that you start over medium-high heat, but if at any point you catch a whiff of oil or food burning, reduce the heat to medium.

  • Add 1 ½ teaspoons of oil to a hot pan and coat the bottom with the oil. Add the eggs and stir immediately. Break the egg apart lightly by flipping or stirring. Transfer the eggs to a bowl when cooked.

  • Add 1 tablespoon of oil to the pan. Add the onion and carrots and cook, stirring often, until the onions are translucent and the carrots are tender, about 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Add the remaining vegetable’s and salt. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally until the veggies are cooked through and turning golden, about 3 to 5 more minutes.

  • Use a big spatula or spoon to transfer the contents of the pan to the bowl with the cooked eggs. Return the pan to heat and the remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Add the ginger, garlic and red pepper flakes, and cook until fragrant while stirring constantly, about 30 seconds. Add the rice and mix it all together. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the rice is hot and starting to turn golden on the edges, about 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Add the greens and green onions, and stir to combine. Add the cooked veggies and eggs and stir to combine. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the Exotic Choice Fried Rice Spice. Taste, and add a little more Fried Rice Spice if you like.

  • Divide into bowls and serve hot for best taste.
