Stir-Fry. Oh, one of my favorites!

Brown rice. Good for you, just a little chewy. Luckily, when you eat it with a tasty sauce it gets moistened up nicely and is delicious!

Get a large pan or preferrably a wok. Put a couple of tablespoons of sesame oil in there and let it start to heat up. Med-high heat. Nothing to fierce, we wouldn't want to start a fire.

It's super easy and tasty to use a frozen bag of stir fry veggie. Frozen veggies are great because you don't have to rush to eat them before they go bad, they are much more healthy than canned veggies, and they are cheaper than fresh produce.

So, dump in a bag of frozen stir fry veggies. I like to add in some extra broccoli, fresh or frozen, to hearty up your stir fry. Those stir fry bags are great but I say, the more large crunchy veggies the better!

Once you've got all your veggies sizzlin', add in some minced fresh giner (about two or three tsp) and a large clove of minced garlic. Mix it around. THEN douce that junk with some soy sauce!

OH mercy. So tasty. You'll have your rice cooking before hand, since rice takes longer to cook- duh. So, once your rice is done just get yourself a hearty scoop of vegestable stir-fry and you're golden.

I also like making stir fry with noodles. However, that recipe requires more of a saucy saucy, whereas the rice resonds well to the light, thin, sesame oil and soy sauce combo. Oh yum. This is what I shall make Thursday night for dinner.
