This is a very tasty recipe - not just good in the tummy but kind to the eyes as well great blend of color from the different veggies. The chicken stock gives additional flavor to the rice I did not put in the pineapple and could only find brown mushrooms but they were excellent Thanks Dancer for another wonderful recipe
Can you say “Ten-Vegetable Fried Brown Soup”, boys and girls? That’s what is was – soup, sort of. The only possible way to “fry” this recipe is with a larger-than-life wok. Before you attempt to make this recipe, might I suggest that you try putting “12 cups” of liquid into your wok? It wouldn’t hurt to have a bucket and mop close by, also. The only way I can think of to make this recipe more closely resemble a fried rice dish as opposed to soup might be to simmer the broth and rice for about 30 hours instead of 30 minutes – maybe by that time the ½ cup of rice will have absorbed the ¾ gallon of chicken stock called for.
