This recipe was created on one of those "nothing sounds good for dinner" nights. Other than the fact that this is a really tasty meal, the thing I love about his Fried Rice recipe is that all the ingredients with the exception of the mushrooms and the cilantro, are always available in my refrigerator/pantry.
My kids really liked this recipe and I often make it to have in the house as a snack for them. Teen-aged boys can eat. This is a VERY inexpensive meal or snack and it is a healthy one too!
