This fried rice cooks in a snap, and it's much healthier than the restaurant version. It can be made in less than 25 minutes and is bursting with flavor. The quick sauce comes together in minutes and is comprised of dry or sweet sherry as well as low-sodium soy sauce. The rest of the stir-fry features marinated tofu, garlic, ginger, summer squash, brown rice, snow peas, and red peppers. Feel free to experiment with any other veggies you have on hand, like mushrooms, onions, and broccoli. Stir in the sauce and sliced scallions right before serving for crunch and a final hit of color and texture.
