Mushroom Fried Rice

After moving, I couldn't find a Chinese restaurant that met my tastes. So, I decided to create my own Chinese dishes. This is one of my favorites, and can be served as a vegetarian main dish or side dish. —Jacob Kitzman, Seattle, Washington

    Wonderful and easy recipe with PERFECT flavor. Enjoyed it with my Sautéed Spicy Green Beans and Korean pork dumplings. I didn't have plain peas so I added some peas

    This is the best fried rice! It is as good as any Chinese Restaurant we have eaten in. I like to serve this with the Asian Chicken Thighs from the TOH sight.

    OMG--I can't find enough words to say just how easy to prepare and how delicious this recipe is! I followed the recipe as is except for one small change--my husband does not like ginger, so I left it out. My husband had three helpings and told me to hang on to this recipe because it's a keeper. I couldn't agree more!
