"healthy" fried rice

this recipe comes straight out of parents magazine, so you know it's easy! and sophie loves the scrambled eggs in this one which makes me happy.


1 8.8-oz. uncle ben's package cooked brown rice (see picture)
1 16-oz. pkg. mixed frozen vegetables (peas, corn, green beans, carrots)
1 cup frozen peppers-and-onion stir-fry vegetables
4 tsp. canola oil, divided
3 eggs
3 Tbs. stir-fry sauce (i like the kikkoman brand)
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper (optional)
lime wedges (i didn't like this though)

heat 2 tsp. canola oil in a large nonstick skillet on medium. whisk eggs and add to the skillet. cook, stirring occasionally to break up eggs, until set. remove from pan. add remaning 2 tsp. oil to the skillet and then increase the heat to medium-high. stir in the frozen vegetables; cook for 5 minutes or until tender.

add stir-fry sauce and crushed red pepper to the skillet. stir in rice and heat through, then mix in the cooked eggs. squeeze lime juice on for extra flavor (like i said, i didn't really get this flavor with everything else, but you might like it).
yum. yum. yum.
