  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 cup uncooked instant rice
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup asparagus
  • 1/2 cup sugar snap peas
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

In a saucepan bring water, salt and soy sauce to a boil. Add rice and stir. Remove from heat, cover and let stand 5 minutes.

Heat oil in a medium skillet or wok over medium heat. Sauté onions, asparagus and sugar snap peas for 2 to 3 minutes. Pour in egg and fry for 2 minutes, scrambling egg while it cooks.

Stir in the cooked rice, mix well and sprinkle with pepper. Add additional salt, if needed.
