I do something like this all the time with left over rice... I'll use a non stick pan and sauté some left over rice and veggies, add some soy sauce or hosin sauce or whatever asian inspired condiments that are in the fridge (e.g. maybe some duck sauce or something like that...) Not a lot, just a tbsp or two... just to add some flavor... and then throw some egg in... So it's like take out fried rice, but without all the oil...
It's pretty filling and very tasty... and if you go heavy on the veggies, it's not that bad from a carb standpoint... maybe only about a half cup of rice per serving or so... You could also add left over chicken, or shrimp, or beef... or if you want something vegetarian add some tofu, or seitan, or some other meat alternative that you like...
P.S. Sorry, I just saw that you are looking for a pre-workout snack, so my idea is probably a bit heavy for that... Your idea sounds good though... simple and quick with a good mix of carb and protein before your work out.... Enjoy!
