Stir Fried Vegetables with Rice


Sometimes cooking can be done within no time if all the things are kept ready and handy. A simple one in that is a Stir fry. As I always keep saying that it is one of our favorites and we can have bowls of it mainly because it is Fat free and it includes healthy vegetables in it!
Normally for such stir fries I do not follow any particular recipe. I just add in things which come to my mind when I make it. This time i had a little rice remaining which i made for lunch and instead of breaking my head as to what to cook at night I made this and yes it did taste SUPER. Not only has the husband and me liked it even
our little daughter liked it. She loves Mushrooms so that goes in stir fry for sure. So get going and make this stir fry in just a few minutes.

Here is how i made it



1 bell pepper, cored, seeded, and cubed
1/2 cup red onion cut into chunks
1 cup small broccoli florets
2 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt( u can use the crystal salt too)
1/2 cup snow peas(optional)
1 cup mushrooms cut in cubes
1/2 cup rice(i used the ricewhich i had made for lunch in the afternoon)
spring onion - 1/4th cup
1tsp schichuan sauce( I will post this recipe soon)
1tsp soya sauce
a pinch of sugar
Cornflour -1tbsp
2 tablespoons sesame oil(this gives the real chinese flavor)
Directions
Start by preparing and cutting all the vegetables and measuring your ingredients so that they are ready to go. Once you begin stir-frying, it goes very quickly.

In a wok or large skillet heat oil, over high heat until almost smoking. Add the peppers and onion while stirring constantly. While continuing to stir, add successively the, broccoli, mushrooms, and garlic, and Sichuan sauce, soya sauce. Cook, stirring, constantly for 2 minutes. Now dissolve corn flour in water and add it to the veggies Add the rice, bell pepper, spring onions and salt, sugar and cook, stirring, until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes more.
