Easy Vegan Vegetable Fried Rice

I don’t know who doesn’t love fried rice.  It could really be a meal all in itself!  But in these last couple of months that I’ve been eating vegan, I have had to find new ways to prepare old favorites.  I’ve discovered that vegan is anything but limiting.  It actually opens up many new doors to different foods I might never have tried.  This is an extremely simple and very tasty recipe for vegan vegetbale fried rice.

Need:

1 cup brown rice, uncooked

2 cups of vegetable broth

1 green zucchini squash, sliced

1 yellow summer squash, sliced

1/2 a red onion, chopped

2-3 carrots, sliced

2 stalks of celery, sliced

sea salt and pepper

a couple Tablespoons of olive oil

4 teaspoons of soy sauce

1. Cook brown rice according to the directions.  I did not have the instant kind so that took 45 minutes.  Feel free to use instant brown rice.

2. Once rice is tender and most of the broth absorbed, remove and spread out onto a plate.  Meanwhile, heat the oil over a skillet over medium high heat.  Add the vegetables and cook until tender (however tender or crisp you prefer), adding a few dashes of salt and pepper.

3.  Add the cooked rice, mixing and heating until all is well combined (add more pepper here if you wish.  I like seeing the pepper sprinkled throughout the rice).

4.  Add the soy sauce and cook for about a minute.  Remove and serve hot.  Enjoy!
