Yummy! I changed this up a bit to make it a little more healthy. I used brown rice, added peas and diced carrots, and I used low sodium soy sauce. I sauteed the whites from the green onions with the peas and carrots while my rice was cooking. I then added the rice to the veggies with about 1/4 cup soy sauce. In a small skillet, I scrambled the 2 eggs and added to the rice with some ground ginger (I didn't have fresh) and the greens from the onions. Whole thing took about 10 mintues to make and it turned out pretty good. Brown rice made it a little too nutty, so next time I'll stick with white rice. Thanks for the recipe!

If your looking for a fried rice recipe as a main dish, keep looking BUT if you want it to accompany a meal (IE: Stir fry or asian beef skewers) this is a decent recipe. Its not too exciting but its a simple side dish. Was okay with our beef stir-fry.

This is good...don't really think it tastes too much like the stuff you get in take out....but still good. You do need to make sure that you add the fresh ginger because without it...it is just too plain. Thanks for the post.

I was impressed by how quick and easy this was... although taste-wise it was missing something. the ginger is the key ingredient. i'd make this again, but i'm still on the search for a better fried rice.

I stirfried chopped green pepper in the sesame seed oil till tender then added frozen peas and carrots. Once the veggies looked good I added the rice and soy sauce. I scrambled the eggs right in the mix and it turned out delicious! Will make this often.

I'm sorry but this was just terribly bland, even when I used a lot more soy sauce, there still wasn't much improvement. I could only manage a couple bites before I gave up on it entirely. I won't be making this again, sorry.
