Vegetarian Fried Rice


Here’s an easy fried rice recipe that is very much like our favorite Midwestern Oriental restaurant’s – obviously for Midwestern tastes.  It is, however, simple to make and tastes good too.  Even picky eaters and young children will enjoy this.  The brown rice adds a nutty flavor, but regular rice would be good too.                   
Vegetarian Fried Rice
  3           Cups  Cooked Brown Rice
     1/2    Cup  Fresh Mushrooms -- sliced
     1/2    Cup  Carrot -- shredded
     1/4    Cup  Green Onion -- sliced

     1/8    Teaspoon  Pepper
