Make This Delicious Vegetable Fried Rice!

Submitted by Calista White

3 T grapeseed oil, divided
4 c previously cooked rice, grains separated well
1 c broccoli florets, cut into small pieces
3/4 c frozen carrots and peas, defrosted
1/4 c soy sauce
1 t toasted sesame oil
2 large eggs, beaten

Heat a wok or large sauté pan on high heat. When the pan is hot enough for a bead of water to instantly sizzle and evaporate, add only 1 tablespoon of the grapeseed oil and swirl to coat pan. Add the eggs and stir quickly, until just cooked, about 30 seconds. Remove the eggs and set aside on a plate. Wipe the wok out and then heat another tablespoon of the grapeseed oil in the wok over medium-high heat. Add the vegetables and cook, stirring constantly, for about one minute. Add in the rice and fry for another two minutes or until heated through. Drizzle with the remaining tablespoon of grapeseed oil. Add the soy sauce and sesame oil and continue to stir fry for one minute. Stir in the eggs and serve.
