Veggie "Fried" Rice

I think the theme this week is one dish meals.
That, or I've just been too lazy to dirty more than one pan.

Anyhoo - here is something most of the family enjoys: Veggie "fried" Rice
I took out my portion and then threw in some shrimp and a little oil to appease the natives, but you can serve it as is too, if your people aren't so picky.

(Forgot to take the picture before the "add ins")

No real recipe, just throw these items together:

First, chop the veggies, I used carrots & green onions

Next, add them to the hot pan and steam fry for 3 minutes. (That means add a tablespoon of water at a time if they start to stick)

Then add the rice , 3-4 cups cooked leftover rice (I used sticky Japanese rice) and sprinkle with soy sauce as it heats up.

Finally add the frozen peas and continue stirring til everything is heated through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Other fun add ins:
Firm tofu (crumble it)
Fake meat (seitan)
snow peas
any veggies leftover in your fridge!

MMmmm comfort food. I WILL NEVER FEEL GUILTY FOR EATING RICE. There. I said it.
And I mean it. Do you LOVE grains?

MMM this looks really good. I seem to be in kind of a rut. Not good. I've been searching your recipes, so I think I'll be getting out of my rut =) You have some yummee recipes on here.

Have a Blessed evening,
