First week of school has come and gone. I must say it wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. The breakfast muffins were a life saver and I have found that leftovers have become my new best friend. For instance, I had some left over brown rice in the fridge and I came home with a craving for some Chinese/Asian type food. So, I threw this together, it was done in under five minutes, and I was in heaven.
Vegetable Fried Rice
-1 to 2 cups of left over brown rice
-1/2 (more or less) a red bell pepper, sliced
-1/2 (more of less) an orange bell pepper, sliced
-1/2 cup of fresh snow peas
-2 tsp. soy sauce (reduced sodium)
-1 tbs. water
-juice of half a lemon
Add some olive oil to a sautee pan and allow to heat up. Then add the bell peppers and sautee them for about 2 minutes, you still want them to be crispy. Add in the snow peas and cook for an additional 2-4 minutes.
In a small bowl whisk together the soy sauce, water, and lemon juice.
Add the rice to the sautee pan and allow it to heat through. Then pour the wet ingredients into the pan and coat the rice and vegetables with the sauce. At this point, the rice is ready to eat!
