This colourful dish boasts the flavour of ginger mixed with a variety of vegetables that includes carrots, mushrooms, snow peas, green peas and kale mixed with scallops. Make this quick dish even faster with leftover rice. We recommend using day old rice for this recipe. Starting with cold rice helps this recipe cook to perfection. The dish cooks very fast so you want to keep the ingredients moving so that they won't burn. The addition of egg boosts its protein value for a satisfying meal.
