Quick Vegetarian Supper





Vegetarians often forget about stir-fry when looking for quick meal ideas. If you cook a big pot of brown rice at the beginning of the week and wash and chop veggies when you buy them for use later, you can have a healthy meal on the table in less than 15 minutes.


Stir-fry

1-2 T. sesame oil (it stands up to the high heat needed for stir-frying better than other oils)

assorted diced veggies of your choice - broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, peppers, snow peas

1 red onion, sliced

2-3 cloves garlic, minced

organic soy sauce

1-2 tsp. finely shredded fresh ginger (I didn't have this on hand, so I used 1/2 tsp. dried ground ginger)

cooked brown rice

Put oil in wok, place over high heat till hot then add longest cooking veggies-broccoli, carrot and cauliflower. Cook and stir 3-4 min., then add onions, garlic, and peppers and fresh ginger if using. Stir and cook 3-4 min. and then add snow peas. Stir and cook 3-4 min. Then add soy sauce and dried ginger if using that. Serve over brown rice.
