Veggie Fried Rice

This was a pretty easy, quick, dang delicious weeknight meal. I just love being able to whip up something tasty and healthy in less than 30 minutes. It really makes the week nights much easier.

Don't get hung up on ingredients. Below is just what I had on hand and that's what you need; 3 cups of whatever veggies you have on hand.  If they're raw throw them in in the beginning like I did, but if you have leftover cooked veggies from a previous meal, throw them in at the end with your leftover rice. I served this with cauliflower steaks.

Boom. Meal.

3 tbsp olive oil
2 small onion, chopped
3 carrot, diced
3 stalk celery, dice 
1 c broccoli florets
1 c mushrooms, diced
1 c red bell pepper
3 tsp herbes de Provence
1 tbsp minced ginger
1/2 tsp salt
1 c raw cashews
3 c cooked brown rice 
3 tbsp tamari
1 tbsp sesame oil
  1. Saute onion, carrot, celery, herbes de Provence, and salt for about 5 minutes. 
  2. Add all the rest of the veggies and ginger; cook for 10 to 15 minutes, or until well browned.
  3. Add rice, cashews, tamari, and sesame oil and stir-fry 5 minutes, or until mixture is hot and well combined. Turn your heat down from high to low and leave it undisturbed for about 10 minutes.
