I just made this for supper and I have to say it's fantastic! I tweaked the recipe a little and added chopped red and green peppers, threw in some bean sprouts and extra spices and voila a yummy meal that does indeed leave you wondering if you've cheated.. it will be a repeat supper for sure! (Oh and did I mention my husband and 5 year daughter love it also!) Thanks for sharing this recipe!

This tastes like a real "cheat" meal - it is very easy to make and very good. I have it almost every day!

I love this, I truly thought I was eating rice. I should have made enough for the whole family, they would not have known the difference, really!
