It’s Meatless Monday! I’ll post my variation of the recipe below for those interested. Miss G has forbidden (black) rice topped with stir-fryed veggies and a small sauce container of soy. At the top left are dried cranberries, goji berries and dried edamame. At the top right is a pumpkin clementine all packed in her Easy LunchBoxes container.
Meatless Monday Stir Fry with rice:
Choose any kind of rice that you have handy and cook. While rice is cooking, cut up the vegetables that you’d like in your stir fry. I had broccoli, onions and carrots. I saute them in water and cook until tender. I also made a first attempt at brown sauce. I used 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1/3 cup vegetable broth, 1/3 cup of molasses, 1 teaspoon of grated ginger and 3 teaspoons of minced garlic. Next time I will add 1 tsp of cornstarch at a time until it thickens a bit. This sauce is definitely something you make to suit your taste. My kids won’t eat a lot of ginger so I minimize it. Cook ingredients in a sauce pot over medium heat for about 5 minutes and pour over rice and veggies. Dinner is served!
Miss G’s Happy Tiffin container is filled with plum sections and a half of an apple. The round container is filled with peach flavored almond milk yogurt.
