Veggie Fried Rice

I love fried rice. But when you add a lot of veggies you have a great meal.

Fried Rice (I cook my rice the day before and chill it really good before doing this recipe)

2 Tbs. canola oil

1 cup peeled, finely diced broccoli stems (from about 1-1/4 lb. broccoli)

3/4 cup finely diced carrots

3/4 cup finely diced red bell pepper

3/4 cup frozen shelled edamame

3/4 cup corn kernels, fresh or frozen

4 scallions (both white and green parts), thinly sliced

2 Tbs. finely grated fresh ginger

2 large cloves garlic, minced

4 cups very cold cooked brown rice

3/4 cup finely diced Canadian bacon (4 oz.)(you could use left over chicken, pork or leave it out all together for a total vegetarian dish)

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

1/4 cup lower-sodium soy sauce

Heat all but 1 tsp. of the oil in a large nonstick skillet or stir-fry pan over medium-high heat. Add the broccoli stems, carrots, and bell pepper and cook, stirring frequently, until the vegetables begin to soften, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the edamame and corn and cook until the edamame is thawed, about 1 minute. Add the scallion, ginger, and garlic and cook, stirring, until the raw garlic aroma subsides, about 1 minute. Add the rice and Canadian bacon and cook, stirring, until heated through, 3 to 5 minutes.Make a 3-inch well in the center of the rice mixture. Add the remaining 1 tsp. oil, then the eggs, and cook, stirring, until the eggs are almost fully scrambled. Stir the eggs into the rice mixture. Stir in the soy sauce and serve.

This is one of my favorite type of side dishes. I love all types of fried rice. This version sounds fantastic!
