Veggie “Fried” Rice

Made up this easy side dish the other day.  Simple and you can totally modify it to fit the veggies you have in the house.

  • 1 cup brown rice
  • water
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 1 cup diced broccoli
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 2 Tbsp reduced sodium tamari or soy sauce, or to taste
  • 1/2 Tbsp rice vinegar (or other vinegar)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

However you wish, cook brown rice.  Here’s my way.

When the rice is nearly done, saute carrot, broccoli and onion in a bit of water or oil or dry.  When cooked to your liking, add frozen peas, tamari, vinegar, and garlic powder.  Put a lid on and simmer a bit.  Turn off heat and wait until rice is ready.

Once rice is ready, add to pan and saute a bit, stirring the veggies into the rice.  Serve with whatever you’d like.  Enjoy!
