How To Make spring green fried rice

    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.
