Nothing could be easier than this light version of fried rice. We've used instant brown rice, but if you have leftover cold rice or can pick some up at a Chinese restaurant on the way home, use that instead and skip Step 1.
1 cup  instant brown rice
1 cup  vegetable broth
2   eggs, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons  canola oil
6 ounces  asparagus spears, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces (about 1/2 bunch)
1   medium red bell pepper, thinly sliced into 1-inch pieces
4   scallions, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 clove  garlic, minced
1 tablespoon  minced fresh ginger
4 teaspoons  reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons  rice vinegar
1 teaspoon  toasted sesame oil
Hot red pepper sauce, to taste
Vegetable Fried Rice Recipe at
Combine rice and broth in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover, reduce heat and simmer until the liquid is absorbed, 12 to 14 minutes. Spread the rice out on a large plate and let stand for 5 minutes.

While the rice is cooling, coat a large nonstick wok or skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Pour in eggs and cook, stirring gently, until just set, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Transfer to a small bowl.

Heat canola oil in the pan over medium-high; add asparagus and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add bell pepper, scallions, garlic and ginger; cook, stirring, until the vegetables are just tender, about 2 minutes. Add the cooked rice, soy sauce and vinegar to the pan; cook until the liquid is absorbed, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Fold in the cooked eggs. Remove from the heat; stir in sesame oil and hot sauce.

best I have ever made
I made this recipe with vegtables I had, I don't even know what they are, that is a different story. This recipe was easy to follow and easy to make. We have had fried rice in Chinese Restaurants from Maine to West Texas and I think this was better than any I have had. Will definetly make it again, I have to find out what those exotic veggies are that were in my fridge. Thanks, Barry
