Green Fried Rice (Snap Peas, Peas, Spinach, Sprouts & Scallions)


I stopped in at Highland Orchards on my way home and picked up a wonderful basket of green:  snap peas, peas, spinach and sprouts.  The first new fresh greens of the year!

I was so excited!  The rest of the drive home was spent figuring out what I was making for dinner with my find.  Pasta?  No, it would be rice.  A stir fry.  But Cam loves fried rice, so I would make a healthy, vegetarian fried rice with all these green ingredients, adding eggs and scallions.

When I got home, I put the rice up to cook, then set to work shelling peas (my wonderful husband helped). I love fresh peas!

With all the fresh ingredients, dinner was incredibly quick to make.  Aside from shelling the peas, total active cooking time was under 5 minutes.  Can’t complain about that.

The other thing I can’t complain about… 4 year-old Cam, who loves snap peas and had already decided that scallions were one of his favorite new foods, decided that the spinach in this dish needed to be added to his list favorite foods.
