Easy, healthy, and delicious Chinese vegetables and rice.
Ingredients
  • 1 c. brown rice (dry)
  • 1 tbsp. canola, grapeseed, sunflower or other lightly flavored oil
  • small yellow onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp. ginger, minced
  • 10 oz. mushrooms (I prefer cremini), washed and sliced
  • 3 carrots, peeled and cut into 1" matchsticks
  • 12 oz. asparagus, cut into 1" pieces
  • 6 oz. bok choy, chopped
  • 3 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. flour
  • 1 c. chicken broth
Instructions
  1. Cook brown rice according to the package directions. Let sit covered in its pot until you're ready to use it.
  2. Heat oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent. Add the garlic and ginger and cook about 30 seconds. Add the mushrooms and cook until browned and soft. Add the carrots and cook until slightly softened. Add the asparagus and cook a few minutes, until it's lost some of its bite but is still bright green. Add the bok choy and cook until it's wilted.
  3. At any point while the vegetables are cooking, put the soy sauce and flour in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. When the vegetables are cooked add the soy sauce mixture and the chicken broth to the pan and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer a few minutes until the sauce has thickened.
  4. Stir in the cooked rice, taste for salt, and serve hot.
