  1. HEAT 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. ADD the bell pepper and COOK, about 5 minutes. STIR in the carrots and continue to COOK until tender, 2 more minutes.

  2. TRANSFER the vegetables to a bowl and STIR in the teriyaki sauce until well combined.

  3. BREAK the eggs into a large bowl. ADD the water and half the green onions and WHISK until well combined. SEASON with black pepper and kosher salt.

  4. ADD the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil to the skillet over medium heat. POUR the egg mixture into the skillet and SET for about 1 minute. SCRAMBLE the egg, and COOK through, about 1 more minute.

To ensure food safety, eggs should be cooked until both the yolk and the white are firm. Consuming raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially for those with certain medical conditions. For recipes that call for eggs that are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, use either pasteurized shell eggs that have been treated to destroy Salmonella, or use pasteurized egg products.
