Quick and Easy Fried Rice

Submitted by: JAYMZMILLER

Introduction

I make this for lunch or dinner when I am in a hurry. It is very filling and low in calories and fat.

I sometimes substitute the Red Pepper Flakes for Fenugreek or Curry Powder because my daughter doesn't like "spicy".
I also like to throw in cooked chicken or shrimp with the vegetables to turn it into a complete meal.
