  1. In a 2-qt. microwave-safe dish, combine the oil, onions, carrot and garlic. Cover and microwave on high for 3-4 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Stir in water, rice and bouillon. Cover and cook on high for 15-18 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, stirring once. Stir in peas, soy sauce and ham if desired. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small microwave-safe bowl, beat the eggs. Cover and heat on high for 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 minutes or until firm. Cut into small pieces; stir into rice mixture. Serve immediately.

Although I prefer the "true" fried rice, this recipe saved me because the main chicken dish I had to go with it was a disaster. This rice tasted very good and flavorful. We all liked it and it w...

This was so easy and so good. I admit, I was a bit skeptical about the whole meal being from the micro...but I thought it was wonderful! I did skip the ham and used some leftover chicken I had f...

I just made this for my mom and I. I followed the directions to the T until the rice wasn't cooking. So I had to add an extra 1 1/2c water. Then finished it off how the directions said. We sat d...

THIS IS DELICIOUS!! It's also easy for an after school snack because I can just pop it in the microwave and start my homework. While I was making dinner, it was easy to focus and make the main d...

This was pretty good, even though I used chicken broth instead of water (I had no boulion) and forgot the soy sauce (duh). The main thing is: use white long grain rice, not brown long grain rice...

I had some leftover instant rice and leftover mixed veggie that I used to make this recipe. I cooked my egg per the recipe and just warmed everthing up in the microwave. Yummy lunch!
