Ginger Vegetable Fried Rice
1 small onion
1 clove garlic
1 large egg
1 c crimini mushrooms
1 c zucchini
1 c yellow squash
1 1/2 c cooked rice (it's best to use leftover rice or to make it soon enough in advance that it's completely cooled)
1-2 Tbsp soy sauce (to your taste)
2 Tbsp Vegetable oil
Ginger dressing (I used a prepared dressing from the Asian food aisle)
1 tsp sesame oil (optional)
-Chop all vegetables to bite size & dice garlic.
-Preheat large pan & vegetable oil (& sesame oil if you choose to use it - it adds a nice nutty flavor).
-Scramble egg, remove from pan and set aside.
-Turn heat to medium high, add vegetables & garlic and cook until they begin to soften, about 3 minutes. You want the vegetables to remain slightly firm.
-Add cold cooked rice & egg. Cook until heated through.
-Add soy sauce.
Serve with ginger dressing drizzled on top.
