Stir Fry Vegetables with Rice Blend
Today, I'm going to give you a quick, easy and healthy side dish, or vegetarian main dish. It's simply because I buy the frozen stir fry veggies from CostCo in the 5 pound bag.
Defrost the veggies. While these are thawing, prepare sprouted rice and quinoa, also from CostCo. The directions call for water but I use chicken broth. My husband loves this for the nutty flavor and texture. It takes half an hour to simmer in the broth or water and an additional ten to allow for steaming, covered and off the heat. Heat peanut oil (I use EVOO because that's what's on hand) and add the veggies. Season with onion salt or powder, garlic powder, lemon pepper, whatever you like and stir them up to heat through. This is where I add the rice blend and stir another minute or two. Even my meat-and-potatoes hubby eats veggies like this.
