    I make rice on the stovetop and you are absolutely right about how easy the process is once you get the water and cook times down depending on the amount rice being cooked. Both variations of the fried rice look delicious!

    Thanks Pretend Chef, I actually use a rice cooker so it took a couple of tries to get the water and timing combination down. The good news is that I had lots of brown rice to play with for these fried rice recipes.

    I never soak rice before cooking, and my rice always is crunchy cause cook times are longer then I budget for. I am going to try soaking and make your veggie fried rice. Looks delish!

    Hi Angie, soaking definitely helps. I tried it without soaking and found the rice too hard. If you don't pre-soak, you probably need to use more water and cook for a longer period of time.

    I had an old $10 rice cooker which I gave away when I moved. After moving, I had to start cooking my rice on the stove top and I HATED it. I could never get the timing or temperature or water ratio correct! So I finally splurge on a Zojirushi rice cooker and have never looked back. I love my rice cooker!!
