"Love this recipe, as a new owner of a rice cooker I am very impressed! I added some green prawns to the rice at the last 12 minute mark then dumped the other ingredients in when it changed to the warm cycle and I needed to fluff up the rice. Totally delicious!"
"If only we had know of unfried rice before. This was amazing and I will make it often now that I know how. Because I was using egg whites only I decided to cook them along with the bacon and spring onions. I used Weight Watcher’s bacon (very lean short cuts) to lower the fat content even more. I lightly cooked the bacon along with the spring onions in a medium pan, added the peas then pushed them to one side in the pan to cook the egg whites. When the whites were cooked I added the spices and soy to the bacon mixture and mixed them together along with the cooked whites, which didn’t need chopping because they were soft – they just stirred into the mixture in pieces. Then I continued with the recipe as written. It was so quick and easy and my husband loved it. Thank you homegirl for sharing your recipe. We think it is worth more than five stars. Glen"
"I actually steamed everything together in the rice cooker except for the scrambled eggs, which I added at the end, and it turned out great! Very neat idea for rice!"
"I loved this! I got a new rice cooker, and went in search of recipes, for it. I had leftover pork ribs, so I used those, for the meat. I added a little grated carrot and sesame oil, for flavor and crunch. Oh, and I scrambled the eggs, in the microwave, too.Thanks...will definitely make, again, when leftovers "happen!""
"We skipped the meat portion and saved the soy sauce for later...It made a great make-ahead meal for work! Just heat it up, add the soy sauce, and delicious! Fantastic idea to make it in the rice cooker, it's definitely healthier that way! ~Wife of Celtichellion :)"
"Terrific recipe!!! Easy, fast and yummy. Will definitely be making again ... added some fresh grated ginger and carrot as some others suggested. Definitely a keeper! Thanks!"
"I have made this twice and it's been a hit! Great way to get all the flavours of fried rice without all the hassle and oil. I added grated ginger as well."
"This recipe WORKS! I even used cooked brown rice and it still worked amazing! That tiny bit of ginger is spectacular. Thank you :)"
"I had my doubts, but this came out great! I like it much better than fried rice, and it took very little time and was VERY easy. I used cooked yellow onion instead of spring onions and left out the meat. My boyfriend, whose family makes traditional fried rice at home, also LOVED it!"
"Very easy and extremely yummy!"
"Pretty good, especially for a healthy recipe. I didn't have any meat available, but you could probably use left over chicken. I added frozen carrots and it tasted all right. I'm not a fan of soy sauce in general, so you could try teriyaki sauce or oyster sauce to give it a different flavor."
"A great way to use jasmine rice and much healthier than fried. I used corn instead of peas. My kids especially liked it. Thank you!"
"This is hearty enough to be a meal on its own, but I served it as a side with Hoisin Salmon and Sesame Roasted Green Beans. My husband is a fried rice fan, and he really enjoyed the blend of flavors."
"Got yourself a winner here! If could...nominate this as recipe of the year! Healthy, nutritious, easy as can be, Hope you will try it...as a suggestion from ME!"
"A great low-fat alternative to fried rice, which I’ll make again. Tasted very much like the real thing, but much lower in fat! I thawed the peas and I added some broccoli florets in step two and a handful of fresh beanshoots after step three. Served with Miller’s Soused Mushrooms Recipe #22986. Very tasty low-fat meal. Next time, I'm going to use snow peas instead of the frozen peas. Thanks for sharing!"
"Very good. The flavour was divine. I just found that mine turned out a bit "sticky". Other than that, I enjoyed the dish."
"We love fried rice and we loved this new way of preparing it without oil. I made as written, using a frozen pea and carrot blend and some leftover char sui for the meat. I let the frozen veggies sit out for about a half hour before dumping the hot rice on top. I also used half the amount of uncooked rice but left the amounts of the other ingredients the same. This is a great quick and easy side dish and I'll be making it again. Thanks for posting this recipe homegirl :)"
"This is a real find for anyone on a diet. I made it with bacon plus a little bit of leftover cooked chicken. It was great! Bye bye, fried rice."
"I agree. This tastes good without the frying. Very nice flavor. I used leftover pork loin. I also added a little chopped carrot for extra color. I'll be making this again!"
