Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    You’ll find the rice and vermicelli mix where the rice mixes are located in the grocery store. The fried rice variety contains almonds, which add flavor and crunch to this dish.
  • tip 2
    Use 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger instead of the fresh gingerroot.
  • tip 3
    Fresh sugar snap peas can be used instead of the frozen.
  • tip 4
    Pick up some frozen egg rolls to heat and serve with this dish.
