Skip the takeout containers and make your own fried rice. Boil 1 cup of water, ½ teaspoon of salt, and 2 tablespoons of low-sodium soy sauce; then, add 1 cup of instant rice and stir. Remove from heat, cover, and let sit for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, heat 1 teaspoon of sesame oil in a wok or skillet over medium heat, then sauté ½ cup of onions, ½ cup of green beans, ½ cup of bean sprouts and 2 garlic cloves for 2 to 3 minutes. Pour in 1 beaten egg and scramble for 2 minutes, then stir in the rice and mix. Top it off with 2 finely chopped green onions and a dash of pepper. Serve with stir-fried chicken breast or grilled shrimp.
