Servings 4


  • 2 cups brown rice (pre-cooked)
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 4 eggs
  • 10 shishito peppers
  • 8 oz shitake mushrooms
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tbs fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1/8 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/4 red bell peppers, sliced
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 2 tbs water
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Add shisito peppers to one side of a lined baking sheet and shitake mushrooms to the other side. Toss with olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Bake peppers and mushrooms for 10-15 minutes until blistered and golden. Remove stems and chop peppers (it's ok to leave the seeds in there).
  • Whisk eggs with half of the chopped scallions. Add salt and pepper to taste. Heat  skillet or wok to medium high heat. Spray with cooking spray to coat the pan. Add eggs, scramble until cooked through about 2-3 minutes. Remove eggs from the pan.
  • Add sesame oil, garlic, ginger and the rest of the scallions to the pan. Cook for 1 minute while lightly stirring. Add red peppers, carrots, brown rice, soy sauce, chopped shishito peppers, roasted shitake mushrooms, water and eggs to the pan. Stir it all around, so that the rice gets coated in the sauce. Enjoy!
