Simple Stir Fry

This is one of our most cherished dishes.  So simple, and so delicious.  The recipe is basically cooked rice with whatever veggies and meat you have.

Sauté the veggies, move them over in the pan, and heat the rice in the newly-vacated area.  Covered, it will heat quickly, so don’t walk away.  I usually spray everything with some distilled water to help quickly spread the heat around and moisten up the grains of rice.

Sweet onions, mushrooms, celery, and bok choy are my standards, and then whatever else is around – especially something with a bright color.  I keep a jar of roasted red peppers around for just such an occasion, but as you can see, I forgot to get it out this time!

Ring the dinner bell, and be glad of the paucity of dirty dishes to wash later!

    I love the idea of paucity of dishes! I am finding that simplicity often tastes better than the complicated. Tonight I have chicken broth and vegetable. It was delicious. So glad that we shared a meal together! Hugs!

      I put leftover chicken in there, but you can substitute any protein item that suits you. I would add a big handful of sliced almonds to go with this “oriental”-type concoction.

    Think about what you get if you buy frozen meals. It’s basically just a bunch of leftovers attractively arranged on tinfoil and sold to you at four or five times the actual cost. So easy to DIY a few and put them in your freezer to trot out at will.
