Toadally Yummy Tuesday

This recipe is straight off Weight Watchers website. I love chinese food but most chinese food is really high in points and sodium, so this was a nice find for me.

I do add chicken breast to the recipe to give it more of a main meal feel, so of course the number of points will go up based on how much chicken breast, shrimp, or beef you add.

My husband liked this recipe as well as my little tadpoles so it is picky eater friendly. Let me know how it turns out if you try it. Enjoy!

Easy Fried Rice
POINTS: 3 (without meat added)

2 spray(s) cooking spray
2 large egg(s), lightly beaten
1 cup(s) carrot(s), shredded
1 cup(s) scallion(s), sliced, divided
3 cup(s) cooked white rice
1/2 cup(s) frozen green peas, thawed
1/4 cup(s) low-sodium soy sauce, or to taste

Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; warm pan over medium-high heat. Add eggs; tilt pan so that eggs cover bottom.

When eggs start to set, break them up into pieces with a heat-proof spatula or wooden spoon. Cook until eggs are cooked through, about 1 minute more; remove eggs them from skillet and set aside.

Off heat, recoat same skillet with cooking spray; set over medium-high heat. Add carrots and all but 2 tablespoons scallions; sauté until carrots are crisp-tender, about 2 to 3 minutes.

Stir in cooked rice, peas and soy sauce; cook until heated through, stirring once or twice, about 1 minute. Gently stir in cooked egg and remaining scallions; heat through. Yields about 3/4 cups per serving.
