    I made this and the mushroom/pine nut & zucchini/walnut variations. All were really, really tasty. The peanut oil gives it the "fried" rice flavor. My only complaint is that the portions were too small. We all really wanted more and it's supposed to serve 4 and it is more like 2-3. So I would double next time. Really good, and super quick!

    Delicious! I can't believe so few ingredients created that much flavor. We used cashews and served the rice with the Sticky Soy-Hoisin Chicken Thighs, also from the December 2013 issue (and also delicious).

    I didn't have peanut oil so I used sesame seed oil. I also didn't have yellow curry paste so I just added curry powder and increased the oil slightly, adding a tablespoon of water. It turned out great! It was a hit for New Year's Eve dinner with friends.
