In the heart of the battle for clean eating and good health stands a box of red Minute rice. Is it a convenience food or a healthy source of carbs and fiber? Or maybe a little bit of both … Is this rice something that one should feel good about feeding their family if it only takes 5 minutes to cook?
Well, we think yes!

To Make the Sauce: Using a small bowl, whisk together the sesame oil, Tamari, rice vinegar, sugar, and cornstarch.
Using a large skillet, use half of the butter and oil to gently cook the eggs. Lightly salt & pepper eggs and they cook.
Remove eggs from the skillet to a dish and add the rest of the butter and oil. Cook the peas and carrots for about 3-4 minutes,
Add sauce to the pan and stir. Cook for about 2 minutes.
Add eggs and rice to the skillet and stir until everything is well coated. Cook on low heat for about 3-5 minutes.
