    Used brown rice, added frozen vegetable medley, used half ginger, and substituted 1 teaspoon of ground ceyenne red pepper instead of red pepper flakes. My fiance said "this is great! we'll have to make this again!" throughout the whole meal.Was very good, will make again. - 4/7/10

    Not bad, but way, way too much ginger! It was all I could taste. Will make it again, with just a dash. I would also use red pepper powder rather than the flakes, just to make the flavor more even. Update: made it with the changes, it was great! - 3/26/09
