    This is fantastic. I now have a new favorite rice recipe. It's quick, easy and delicious. Using regular cooked brown rice works just as well as the precooked kind, FYI. I used olive oil instead of peanut oil, as I didn't have peanut oil. That was fine as well.

    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.

    An easy way to make 'fried' rice. I subbed red curry paste for the yellow and don't know what yellow would have tasted like but this recipe has great flavor and is pretty easy to make, just a little slicing and chopping. I heated the rice in the MW before adding it to the wok. For the amount of rice it can handle more of the onions and peppers. I toasted silvered almonds - wow!

    This was so easy to make. I added snow peas and peanuts. I had never used the Uncle Ben rice and it was good. If I had more time I would make regular brown rice and chill it in the fridge for a couple of hours before using. I served it with the spicy basil chicken. Yum.

    My family loves homemade fried rice. Nobody ate this one. I even went out of my way to get the yellow curry paste and I think that is the ingredient nobody liked the taste of. Won't make this again.
