Ingredients:

1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon canola oil
2 large cloves garlic, minced (about 2 teaspoons)
4 scallions (white and green parts), thinly sliced
1 tablespoon peeled and minced fresh ginger
4 cups cooked brown rice
¾ cup seeded and finely diced red bell pepper
¾ cup frozen shelled edamame, cooked according to package directions and drained
½ cup fresh or frozen (thawed) corn kernels
6 ounces firm tofu, cut into ¼-inch cubes
2 large eggs, beaten
3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce

Directions:

1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat until very hot but not smoking. Add the garlic, scallions, and ginger and cook, stirring, until softened and aromatic, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the rice, red pepper, edamame, corn, and tofu and cook, stirring, until heated through, about 5 minutes.

2. Make a 3-inch well in the center of the rice mixture. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil, then add the eggs and cook until nearly fully scrambled. Stir the eggs into the rice mixture, then add the soy sauce and incorporate thoroughly. Serve hot.
