Fried rice is so yummy. I could make a meal out of it--forget about the main dish. This one is vegetarian and full of beautiful spring greens.

In a small bowl beat eggs and 1 tsp. soy sauce; set aside. In a wok or large skillet heat toasted sesame oil over medium heat. Add egg mixture; stir gently until set. Remove egg; cool slightly. Using your hands, roll the cooked egg into a log. Using a sharp knife, slice the egg into strips; set aside.
