If using uncooked rice, prepare rice as directed on package, then allow to cool.

Scramble the eggs in a small pan over medium heat, creating small bits of egg.

In large bowl, carefully toss peas, grated carrot, scrambled egg, diced onion and cooled rice together.

Melt margarine in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Dump the bowl of rice/vegetables/egg into the pan, then add the soy sauce. Cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring often. Salt and pepper to taste.

As a variation, may sauté bite size chicken (or pork or beef) pieces first, then proceed with recipe and add meat to frying pan with rice mixture to create a meal.

"Definitely use green onions and don't overcook them. I think this is what gives it that fresh taste."
