Broccoli and Mushroom Fried rice

I love to make fried rice as it's versatile with different veggies and love the flavor of different combos. Normally, very little veggies are added to the Szechuan fried rice.
I love the sauce but broccoli and mushrooms too. So, I made this rice and it became a huge hit with kids.
This rice can be made as a quick dinner or for lunch boxes. I'm sending this dish to blogging Marathon #72 under vegetarian dinner recipes.
