"My family found this dish to be very tasty and want me to make it again real soon. I used frozen peas and carrots for vegetables because that's what my family prefers. Also, I prefer to use a little less of sesame oil.

Cooked instant rice will work well also. Great taste."

"This is a great recipe. We like spicy Chinese so I zipped it up a bit with some chili paste and also added some low sodium soy sauce and garlic. Next time I will add some cooked onion to the recipe. The mix is also very appealing to the eye and I liked the texture of the ready-to-serve rice."
