Vegetable Fried Rice

Rice

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons veggie broth for stir-frying
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn or peas
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, deseeded, diced
  • 3 1/2 cups previously cooked brown rice
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce or to taste, or thick soy sauce, vegetarian oyster sauce, or a combination
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 3/4 cup cashews
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
  • Salt to taste, optional
  • 500 grams braised tempeh or North Atlantic shrimp

Preparation:

Heat broth in preheated wok on medium-high heat. Add ginger, stir until fragrant. Add onion, stir-fry for about 2 minutes, until softened.

Push the onion to the sides of wok. Add the frozen corn or peas in the middle, and stir-fry for 1 minute. Push to sides, add red bell pepper in the middle and stir-fry for 1 minute.

Add rice in middle of the pan. Stir until heated through (about 2 minutes), using a spatula to turn and move the rice around the pan. (Note: You can remove the stir-fried vegetables before adding the rice if the pan is too crowded, and then add them back before adding the seasonings. It’s generally not necessary though, since the rice is already cooked and just needs to be heated through).

Stir in soy sauce, and pepper. Stir in cashews. Stir in green onion. Taste and add seasoning if desired. Add tempeh or shrimp, stir and serve.
