Shitaki Fried Rice

ok after all that junk food talk, I have finally decided to make something healthy well at least according to the body+soul magazine it is healthy lol. I followed the instructions. The only thing I eliminated was Ginger as I am not a fan of Ginger. I also used Frozen Shitaki Mushroom instead of fresh or dried ones. Gosh have u seen the prices for them its so crazy high! I guarantee it doesn't even cost that much in Asia as I used to eat it all the time! Anyway this is one of the few times I actually cooked according to the instruction and not making horrible mistake. It pretty much came out like the pic.
Serves 4
Coarse salt and ground pepper
11/2 cups brown rice
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon vegetable oil, such as safflower
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 pound shiitake mushrooms, stems removed, thinly sliced
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons minced, peeled ginger (from a 2-inch piece)
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
1 cup frozen shelled edamame, thawed
4 scallions, thinly sliced on the diagonal
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil; add rice. Boil until rice is al dente, 30 to 35 minutes. Drain and rinse well with cold water; drain again.
In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon oil over medium. Add eggs; season with salt and pepper and cook until set, 1 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and let cool; roll up and thinly slice crosswise.
In same skillet, heat remaining tablespoon oil over medium-high. Add mushrooms, garlic, ginger, and red-pepper flakes; season with salt. Cook, tossing frequently, until shiitakes are tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Add rice, eggs, edamame, scallions, lime juice, and soy sauce. Cook, tossing, until rice is heated through, 2 to 3 minutes.
