Fried Rice with Broccoli and Eggs

Karry Hosford
Yield 6 servings (serving size: 1 1/3 cups)
Stir-frying rice is a great way to turn leftover rice into a quick and easy meal. It's important that the rice is cold so it won't become sticky while cooking; the oil coats the chilled grains and prevents clumping.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups small broccoli florets
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 cups cooked long-grain rice, chilled
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/4 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
