On Tues. and Thurs. nights my boyfriend goes to class from 6-9pm, leaving me on my own for dinner. He is not a fan of soy sauce — and I love soy sauce — so, I’ve been taking advantage of his absence and making myself stir fry. It’s a very simple recipe, but it’s good, is dairy free, gluten free and low in saturated fat.
- 1 bag Success Boil in Bag brown rice
- 1 tbl olive oil
- ½ of each – red, orange, yellow pepper
- ½ white onion
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- San-J low sodium soy sauce (to taste)
How to make:
- Start the rice according to the directions. Take a large pan (I don’t have a Wok) and heat the olive oil on med-high. Cut the onion and peppers in half. Save one half and chop the other half. (Tip: use the “As Seen on TV” Vidalia Onion Chop Wizard. It’s only $20 and I actually use it a lot for this meal, as well as to make pico de gallo salsa.)
- Add the chopped peppers, onions and garlic to the pan and cook until the onions become translucent – this usually coincides with the rice being complete.
- Turn off the burner and mix the rice and vegetables in the pan.
- Add desired amount of soy sauce. Done!
For me, this makes two servings. I eat one for dinner and then I have lunch the next day.
