Honey Tips

Honey Is One of the Oldest Foods

Honey is one of the oldest foods in existence. It was found in the tomb of King Tut and was still edible since honey never spoils.


Cook rice according to package directions. Set aside.
In a small bowl whisk together soy sauce, honey, rice vinegar and ginger. Set aside.
In a large non-stick skillet or wok heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Once hot, add eggs and scramble, breaking up egg as it cooks. Remove from pan. Set aside.
Add remaining tablespoon of oil to pan. Heat. Add carrots and cook stirring about 3 minutes. Add snow peas, mushrooms, bean sprouts and 3 tablespoons sauce. Stir-fry a few minutes until vegetables are just tender. Stir in cooked rice, reserved scrambled eggs and remaining sauce. Stir to combine. To serve, spoon onto plates and top with chopped scallions and cashews.
