Stir fries are generally pretty easy once you know you can use water or vegetable stock to soften vegetables. Feel free to vary this as per your own taste with different vegetables. Essentially you are just softening veggies, adding in the beans, peas, rice and spice and you’re done!
* 2 large carrots, diced
* 2 large celery stalks, diced
* 1 large onion, chopped
* 1 cup kale leaves, chopped
* 1 cup frozen green peas
* 1 cup of drained black beans
* 1 red pepper, chopped
* 1 cup frozen broccoli florets
* 1 teaspoons turmeric
* 2 tablespoons of sriracha sauce (warning: this is hot!)
* ½ cup water
* 2 teaspoon vegetable soup stock powder or replace water with vegetable stock
* 4 cups of cooked basmati rice
Mix ½ cup water and the soup stock powder and pour into to a large wok or deep sauce pan.
Add in the chopped carrots and cook carrots until they are semi-soft using medium heat.
Once carrots are semi-soft add the remaining vegetables, bean and peas cover and cook on medium heat until all veggies are soft. Make sure you check it often there should be some water/stock mature in the bottom of the pan if not add a little more water to cook the remaining vegetables. It is important to stir this dish often with a large spoon.
Cook until all the extra water is mostly gone.
Add 4 cups of cooked basmati rice.
Add turmeric and sriracha sauce (here you have to use you taste I like it hot sometimes I add a little more than this).
Stir until rice has a nice yellow color throughout the dish. I often add more sriracha to the plate for more heat.
