[Prepared 4-9-10 for lunch]
1 12 oz pkg frozen rice and oriental veg (Kroger)

2 cups chicken stock (homemade)
1 t dark sesame oil
1 t soy sauce
1 t fish sauce
1/4 t granulated garlic
1 egg, beaten with 2 t water
1 T chopped cilantro
1 green onion, finely sliced across
1 Chinese or Japanese fish cake, thinly sliced on an angle
Heat oil in a 3 qt sauce pan until it shimmers. Add the frozen mixture. Stir fry until beginning to get tender, about 4 minutes. Add the stock, heat to boiling, add the four seasonings, and lower heat to a simmer for 2 to 3 minutes. Raise the heat, and slowly stir in the egg to form threads. Add the cilantro. Plate in a bowl, arrange the fish cake on top, and garnish with the sliced green onions.
