  1. In a small bowl whisk together ginger, garlic, scallion, sesame oil, soy sauce, hoisin sauce and honey to make the sauce.
  2. Heat a wok or large sauté pan on medium heat and add the canola oil. Add the carrots to the pan and cook until they begin to soften. Add mushrooms and stir-fry until soft, about 5-10 minutes. 
  3. Add the cooked rice, kale and sauce to the pan. Stir to combine and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Create a well in the middle of the rice. Scramble the eggs in a small bowl. Pour the eggs into the well and stir until they are cooked through. Once the eggs are cooked mix into the rice and serve.
