Weight Watchers Smartpoints - 4 per 1/2 cup


Ingredients:

5 cups water

2 1/2 cups rice

2 Tb olive oil

1 Tb sesame oil

1 container 14.5 oz Trader Joe's Mirepoix (1/2 chopped onion, 3 carrots chopped, 3 stalks celery chopped)

2 tsp minced garlic or 3 cloves minced garlic

8 oz sliced mushrooms

1/4 cup low sodium tamari or soy sauce

1/4 cup Trader Ming's General Tsao's Stir Fry Sauce

1/8 cup Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki Sauce

3 eggs, beaten


Directions:

Cook the rice according to the directions on the package.  Mine is 5 cups water to 2 1/2 cups of rice.


Set aside.


Heat the olive and sesame oil in a wok or a very deep stir fry pan over medium high heat.


Add the mirepoix to the oil and saute until the onions are translucent.  


Next add the garlic and saute for a minute, next add the mushrooms and cook for approximately 5 minutes.


Then add the rice and mix with the vegetables.


Add the tamari sauce, stir fry sauce, and teriyaki sauce and mix well.


Next, make a hole in the center of the pan, moving the rice and vegetables to the edges of the pan, and add the beaten eggs.


Cook just the eggs in the center of the pan just like you would scramble eggs, without the rice in it as much as possible.


Once the eggs are mostly cooked, stir into the rice and vegetable mixture. Add more tamari sauce if needed.


It is ready to serve.  You can add some kind of meat if you want, but we eat it like this and it is delicious. 


Serves 20 -  1/2 cup servings
