I really like this recipe because it's quick, easy and healthy! It took me 45 min tonight from start to finish to make it and that included time to de-tail and sauté shrimp (which I added to the rice at the end). Other additions included frozen peas, water chestnuts and canned stir fry baby corn. If you need a little kick to the flavor, just add some sriracha! Will definitely make again.

This was really good, and super easy to make. Great for a weeknight dinner. My boyfriend and I are only "occasional" vegetarians, but did not miss the meat in this. I added extra carrots. Next time I might add some additional veggies for variety, and maybe an extra egg for more protein.

This will most likely be my go-to fried rice recipe. I added frozen corn, peas, and edamame and doubled the recipe because my bag of rice was 10 oz. It only came out to 215 cals for five servings. Next time, I'll make the servings a little larger so that it's more filling. Very good recipe!

Very good! And for the non-vegetarians, you can easily stir-fry up their favorite meat on the side for them to add to it!

This is great veggie fried rice recipe-- great taste, but I found it by one of the Weeknight Recipes and I did not think it can sit on its own as a whole meal. It felt like it was lacking something to make it more substantial. I might keep this recipe in my pocket for other Asian inspired meals as a side-- it's a very easy and good rice.

I made this while on vacation. I love how it is full of veggies....very healthy indeed. Next time I would add tofu or chicken and definitely some chili flakes.

This rice was just okay. If you add chicken or tofu and possibly some more additions to spice it up, it might go somewhere. What I did like about it, is it seemed light and healthy; it didn't leave me feeling weighed-down. But I am not planning on making this again.
