Made using a few shortcuts, this 15 Minute Stir-Fried Rice doesn’t miss any flavor. It’s made with peas and carrots, onions, and cooked rice.


  • 1 tbsp. olive  oil
  • ½ c. onions, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 1 c. peas and carrots, frozen
  • 2–  16 oz pouches microwavable Jasmine Rice
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 tbsp. Soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. Sesame oil
  • ¼ c. green chives, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large skillet pan, heat on medium heat. Add olive oil. 
  2. Add the onions to the pan and cook for 5 minutes until softened. Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until fragrant. Add the peas and carrots and cook until thawed.
  3. Heat the rice in the microwave for about one minute. Long enough to loosen the rice. Add to the skillet and toss in with the veggies. Make a hole in the middle of the pan and crack the egg. Allow to cook and once whites appear, begin to scramble with a rubber spatula. Toss the scrambled egg in with the rest of the ingredients. 
  4. Add the soy sauce and sesame and toss again with a spatula. Season with salt and pepper to taste and top with chopped green onions and serve.
