This was just a little too bland and plain for our tastes. I added some shredded carrots and sliced celery to punch it up a little.

Wonderful! Kind of an Asian flavored savory porridge. A quick and delicious way to stretch ingredients into a healthy and satisfying one-dish meal. I used a little more meat but otherwise followed the directions exactly. The green onions, soy sauce and sesame oil are key. I also sprinkled in a bit of fresh ground pepper.
