Easy Fried Rice
Serves 6 at 4 WW Points Plus per serving or
serves 4 at 6 WW Points Plus per serving

2 sprays cooking spray
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup carrots, shredded
1 cup scallions, sliced divided
3 cups cooked white rice
1/2 cup frozen green peas, thawed (I substitute another vegetable here, we strive for a pea free live)
1/4 cup soy sauce

Coat a large nonstick pain 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 heatproof spatula or wooden spoon.  Cook until eggs are cooked through, about 1 minute more; remove 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, saute until carrots are crisp-tender, about 2 to 3 minutes.

Stir in cooked rice, peas (or other vegetable) 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 six 3/4 cup servings (or 4 just over one cup servings)
