The rice was Uncle Ben's, but I only used a sprinkling of the seasoning packet but having exact directions helped me not fail at cooking rice again of all things. In the future, I would probably slice up more onion if I'm going to caramelize them, since they shrink a good bit, and if I'm going to put that much time into it, I'd rather have a lot more to show for it. The vegetables were easy enough, and the ginger really makes all the difference. I'm going to start putting that in everything. I just love the combination with a bit of shoyu and garlic. And I LOVE using nuts as the protein. The texture and fantastic aroma of roasted nuts really added to the dish.
Overall, this was delectable. I gobbled up the leftovers the following day at lunch. I will definitely have to make this again, with maybe some different vegetables and/or nuts, or maybe even try it with some quinoa or pasta.
