From the Test Kitchen

Tonight, we’re creating a restaurant-quality classic: hearty chicken fried rice, full of the irresistible flavors and textures of veggies, eggs and delectable teriyaki sauce. To ensure all the elements blend seamlessly, you’ll cook the eggs on their own in the pan, before stirring them together with the squash, cabbage and green beans. A garnish of chopped peanuts adds a final layer of crunch. (One note, chefs: depending on what’s best near you, your summer squash may be green or yellow!)

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and finely chop the ginger. Cut out and discard the cabbage core; thinly slice the leaves. Snap off and discard the stem ends of the green beans; cut into 1-inch pieces. Halve the squash lengthwise; cut crosswise into ¼-inch-thick pieces. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice on an angle, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Crack the eggs into a bowl; beat until smooth. Roughly chop the peanuts.
