Stir Fry Veggies

Just a quick post today for some veggies I fixed a couple of days ago.  It’s a quick way to dress up a frozen vegetable blend.

  • 1 Tbs sesame oil ~ olive oil will work too but sesame adds a nice oriental flavor
  • 1 pound frozen stir fry vegetable blend; any combination
  • 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1 Tbs soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup cooked rice

Heat oil in large skillet or wok.  Add vegetables and saute for about 6 – 8 minutes until veggies are thawed and cooked to desired tenderness.  Stir in teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, and rice and heat through.

Fried Rice

Charles made some awesome fried rice with the teriyaki chicken a couple of days ago.  I really enjoyed this; it’s one of those dishes that it is easy to eat too much though.  I loved everything about it; the crunch of the water chestnuts, the eggs, the peas; oh so very tasty.

  • 1 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 2 Tbs sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced carrot
  • 1/2 cup sliced celery
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 2 sliced jalapeno
  • 1 – 2 Tbs soy sauce
  • 2 eggs; scrambled and cooked
  • 1/2 can water chestnuts
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 cup peas
  • black pepper

Cook rice for 9 – 10 minutes; this will leave the rice slightly undercooked.  Rinse rice well and drain thoroughly; spread rice to dry out while prepping remaining ingredients.  In large skillet heat sesame oil; sauté carrot, celery, onion, jalapeno, and crushed red pepper for 6 – 8 minutes or until veggies are tender.

Add rice, eggs, soy, garlic, peas, water chestnuts and pepper; cook over medium high heat for 5 – 10 minutes.
