Healthier Fried Rice

For a great fried rice taste but with a little healthier spin, try this Fried Brown Rice.  I made it with brown rice (duh) and olive oil, which still contains fat but doesn't clog your arteries.  Enjoy.

3 C cooked brown rice, cold
1 carrot, shredded
1/2 C frozen peas
1/2 C frozen corn kernels
One 8-ounce can water chestnuts, drained and chopped
2 green onions, chopped
2 eggs, beaten
2 cloves garlic, minced
Drops of sesame oil (optional)
Soy sauce, to taste
Sriracha (optional)

Generously drizzle some olive oil into a large skillet and preheat to medium high. Cook the carrots and water chestnuts until the carrots are tender.  Add in the rice and garlic.  Drop a few drops of sesame oil in. Cook for a couple of minutes, stirring constantly, until rice is heated through.  Stir in the corn, peas, and green onion.  Pour in enough soy sauce to suit your taste and Sriracha, if desired.  Make a well in the center and pour in the eggs.  Cook and stir until the egg is done and mixed through.  Serve with additional soy sauce, if desired.
