******Kyle declared this restaurant quality fried rice!!!!!!!!!! He was shocked it had no meat since we always order meat version when we go to a restaurant and yet my homemade tasted better. He requested it be put into the normal rotation.

Basic Fried Rice

2 teaspoon of dark sesame oil (I don't have this and I'm not buying it) I did end up getting this
1/2 cup matchstick carrots
1/2 cup green onions
2 teaspoons minced garlic from jar
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 cups chilled cooked brown rice (use up leftovers yippee)
1 large egg lightly beaten
2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon water

Heat sesame oil over high heat, add carrots, onions, garlic, pepper, stir fry.
Add rice, stir fry.
Push mixture to the sides forming a well in the center.
Add egg to the center and cook 30 seconds.
Toss with rice and stir fry until the egg is cooked.
Stir in soy sauce and water, cook until heated.

Then they go on to include recipes to doctor up the basic recipe to be veggie, shrimp, pork or chicken fried rice. We are making veggie by adding mushrooms, peas, corn, 3 tablespoons dry white wine and maybe whatever else is laying around (broccoli for example).
