SO HOW'D IT GO?

Great!  I'm guessing this will turn into another go-to recipe when I'm short on time.  For dinner the other day I added celery, cashews, and some pre-grilled tofu and it was excellent!

One thing that can make fried rice even better is mirin (sweet cooking wine).  I always put a ratio of 4:1 or 6:1 of mirin:soy sauce (yes, more mirin than soy sauce--soy sauce is stronger). ;)b

That's totally what I made mine with! Also, mine ended up not needing anything.  Dunno why I thought it would need onion powder when it had so much onion in it already...

But yeah, those two dishes go really well together.

made mine with the green onion, celery, shredded carrot, mushroom, peas, and a bit of red bell pepper. so great!
