    I used frozen green chickpeas, peas and corn. I added fresh garlic and leftover cooked rice with fried bacon, onion and dill I’d made to stuff Ukrainian cabbage rolls. Adjusted soy sauce and ginger to taste. Veggies needed another minute to defrost and egg needed an extra minute to coagulate. A good basic recipe which can be customized to what you have on hand.

    Quick lunch or in between running around meal . Since you use already pre cooked rice it’s literally done in a few minutes . The only thing I had to change is the soy sauce amount - used half soy sauce and half no salt chicken broth since I have to watch my sodium . Otherwise there is always room for adding some pork or chicken leftovers - aka pork fried rice . Thanks for posting

    This was a last minute lunch for my daughter to take to school A little bland, but great for a quick recipe I had cooked jasmine rice so that's what I used. My veggies were frozen broccoli, cauliflower and peas The egg never got to the consistency you expect of scrambled or fried eggs and it took about twice as much microwave time as noted. Next time, I'll try with a little oil added. Would be great with some sautéed onions and carrots added

    So disappointing! This one's an epic fail. There is not nearly enough liquid nor microwave time to even begin to cook the Minute Brown Rice. To save this mess from the garbage pail I dumped it into a larger bowl, added 3/4 cup water and another tablespoon of soy sauce, covered the bowl, cooked in the microwave for 7 more minutes (stirring halfway through), and let stand covered for another 5 minutes before serving.
