My husband, our two kids and I enjoy this deliciously different fried rice dish. The brown rice makes it extra nutritious... and it's a great way to use up leftover cooked turkey.

  • Oh yeah, why precook the egg? The rice will be hot enough to cook the egg if just added to the rice. And I just realized you said to add lettuce? Hummm, do you mean bok choy? And I prefer extra virgin olive oil over canola.. I just don't like the taste of canola oil. Peanut oil is another favorite of mine, but can not afford it most of the time now a days.

  • I prefer brown rice as well, anytime. But have you all noticed that the companies are 'processing' natural brown rice now? Ugh..... I don't mind the 40 minutes of steam time, to have the brown rice unadulterated or messed with.

    I believe the chopped peas is just a typo boo boo. lol. Although, I have been known to chop raisins in half for my stuffings. lol....... so not sure, I will not be chopping peas. It is a good recipe even with the chopped peas.
