3/4 cup frozen carrots or diced fresh

3/4 cup frozen peas

Directions

Heat oil in a wok or nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add in garlic, ginger and the white portion of the green onions. Cook until fragrant.

Add carrots & peas, cook until heated and softened.

Add rice (and protein if using) continue to cook until rice slightly crisped and brown. Don’t stir too much, you do want to get a little bit of caramelization.
