Vegetable Fried Rice

One of our favourite dishes is vegetable fried rice. It is a quick and easy meal that the whole family will fulljoy!

You will need:

1 cup brown basmatic rice or black rice or wild rice
1 head of greens like bokchoy, pakchoi, kale or swiss chard
1 onion
½ sweet pepper
4 pimento peppers
2 cloves garlic
small piece ginger
A bunch of chives
1 stalk celery
A big bunch of parsley
¼ cup corn (optional)
piece of broccoli
½ large carrot or 1 small one
Sea or pink salt to taste
Ground/dried seasonings: ginger, turmeric, cumin, Italian seasonings
A few dashes of Liquid aminos/soy sauce
Optional seasonings to sprinkle: Kelp seasoning, 1 tbs nutritional yeast

Note that you can add any type of vegetable to your rice. It is a dish for whatever you have in the fridge. I use:

1/2 cubed cho-cho or christophene, 
1 piece of pumpkin cubed
1/4 finely diced eggplant
3 sliced okra 

Wide flat frying pan.
Wooden spoon


Prepare the rice. Cook 1 cup of rice in 2 cups of water with a little salt and turmeric.

Chop finely the onion,celery, chives, parsley, sweet pepper. For best flavour grate both garlic and ginger.

Chop the greens as well.

Grate carrot and break broccoli into smaller pieces.

Lightly sautee the seasonings and vegetables for 3 minutes and add the ground/dried seasonings, salt etc. for flavor.

Combine with the cooked rice and stir for another minute. Remove from flame and allow to cool for flavor to seal in.

Quick, Simple and Delicious!
