Shrimp fried rice- cheap! With a soy free option!!

In honor of my friend, here is a cheap dinner that is dairy free and gluten free and has an option to be SOY FREE!!! 
All prices are as of August 2014. 

2 cups dry rice, prepared to make 4 cups+ .... About $.50
1/2 pound salad shrimp... $2.35
12 oz Frozen peas and carrots... $1.09
2 eggs... $.33 to .65 (depending on what eggs you buy)
Prepared soy sauce or THIS SOY FREE SOY SAUCE RECIPE!!... $.50

Prepare the rice. In a large wok pan or skillet, heat 1/4 cup of oil (I used certified organic canola oil, but safflower oil would be a good GMO FREE alternative) over high heat. Put rice and frozen veggies in pan and stir around to combine... Should be frying!! Add shrimp undrained and "some" soy sauce. Fry until everything is hot and combined. Make a well in rice in the center of the pan all the way to the metal. Put scrambled eggs in the well and stir until fully set. Mix the whole thing again, adding some soy sauce if desired. Serve it up!! Total for 4 big servings... $4.77!!! 
Quick, easy, and cheaper than takeout! Enjoy! -Michelle :)
