  • 1 cup Jasmine rice
  • 1 3/4 cup chicken broth or water
  • 3 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup shoestring carrots
  • 1/3 cup frozen peas
  • 1/4 cup green onion sliced
  • 1/3 cup fresh bean sprouts
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp ground mustard
  • 1/2 tsp minced ginger
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tsp molasses


  • Heat chicken broth (or water)  in sauce pan to boiling
  • Add rice and turn down to simmer for 15 minutes until liquid is gone and rice is fluffy
  • While rice is cooking, whisk together soy sauce, mustard, ginger, garlic and molasses and set aside
  • Once rice is ready remove from heat
  • Place stir fry pan on heat and add 1 tsp of sesame oil
  • Crack eggs into pan and scramble in pan
  • Once eggs are scrambled, add 1 tsp sesame oil to pan
  • Add carrots, green onion, peas and bean sprouts – stir fry for 3-4 minutes
  • Add remaining tsp of sesame oil and rice and stir fry for 3-4 minutes
  • Spread rice around pan – up around sides – so rice is spread out as much as possible
  • Add soy sauce mixture and stir fry additional 3-4 minutes
  • Serve and top with green onions



  • Use Chicken Broth instead of water to make your rice - it adds so much flavor!!!
  • Don't swap out the Sesame Oil - it adds a TON of flavor
  • Add in cooked chicken, pork, shrimp etc and more veggies to make it more than a side dish! 
  • Leftovers can be refrigerated for 3-4 days
  • Leftovers reheat best in microwave for 1:30 or in skillet for 5 min
