  1. In a large skillet set over low heat, heat 1 tablespoon oil. Stir in diced scallions and peas, cooking until warm, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in brown rice, soy sauce, rice vinegar and mirin, cooking for 2 to 3 more minutes to fry the rice. Add the shredded spinach, stirring and cooking until spinach starts to wilt slightly.
