    You'd never guess this flavor-packed fried rice is low cal/low fat. Even if you think you don't like brown rice, give it a try. You might be pleasantly surprised. The time for the rice to set is included in the prep and cook times.

      This recipe makes quite nice fried rice. It's full of colorful vegetables that make it tasty as well as attractive. I am another who didn't follow the directions for the rice. I already had, in the refrigerater, cooked brown rice, so I used about 4 servings worth of that. I did use frozen green peas instead of snow peas, added some more fresh mushrooms, and omitted the watercress, but in general, followed the recipes for ingredients and amounts. I prefer the vegetables for fried rice to be chopped very fine, so ignored those directions. I used full sodium soy sauce rather than low sodium soy sauce, and on tasting the results at the end of cooking, I added about 2 tablespoons of Chinese rice wine. I think next time I'd like to add some egg, as the person who posted the picture seems to have. Thank you for posting this recipe. It's not exactly what I was aiming for, but it is good.

      I made several changes: I increased the amount of veggies and shrimp, excluded the ginger and watercress leaves, and I didn't set the rice aside for 3 1/2 hours. Despite it all, the recipe was a hit!

      I thought this was a lot of work but produced a solid one dish meal. I pretty much doubled everything (rice and veggies) though left the oil the same. Oh, and I didn't do the recommended thing with rice. I did cook it and then cool it first. Though I used instant brown rice because of time constraints I do not recommend that. Crisper rice would have been nicer. Like ellie I left some veggies out (celery and watercress) and added extra carrots and others. I also used a leek instead of green onion though ours ended up being the most pungent leek I have ever used and the flavor dominated a bit. My husband said he would have rather had the leek put on earlier and cooked a bit more, but I liked the crispness. Oh, and I rehydrated some dehydrated shitakes and I loved that touch too. This was a nice healthy meal. Thanks!
