Crumble the rice with your fingers to separate and set to the side. In a large sauté pan or wok, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and stir fry for 2-3 minutes, until the onion is translucent. Add the garlic, ginger, and white parts of scallions and stir-fry for 30 seconds.

Add the pepper and mushrooms and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add the cabbage, bean sprouts, salt, soy sauce, sugar, and several grindings of black pepper and stir-fry for 2 minutes more. Add the peas and rice, mix well, and stir-fry until everything is hot and all the liquid has been absorbed, 5 to 6 minutes. (If it is too dry, add 2 tbsp of water)

Remove from heat, stir in the sesame oil, and additional soy sauce, if desired. Garnish with chopped green scallion tops and chopped watercress (2).
