Buddha's Delight

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, been very busy doing work while my boss was on a much needed and deserved vacation.  I've also been very busy with roller derby, I'm not a skater yet, but will be soon...hopefully.  Right now I do a lot of official stuff, like keep track of penalties, keep score, and time the penalty box.  Anyway, back to food.  This recipe is called Buddha's Delight and it's from The Happy Herbivore by Lindsay S. Nixon.  I found it to be very easy to make and quite yummy. 

What you'll need:
1 small onion, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup thinly sliced carrots
1 cup shredded cabbage
1/2 cup cauliflower florets
1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced
1 green bell pepper, seeded and sliced
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp raw sugar
2 cups cooked brown rice

You can also add broccoli florets, snow peas, sugar snap peas, mushrooms, bean sprouts, tofu chunks, edamame, or any veggie you have on hand or enjoy in stir-fries.

First, cook onion in 1/4 cup of water over high heat. Once onion is translucent, add remaining vegetables.

Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook, adding a little water as necessary until vegetables are cooked but still crisp, about 10-15 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix soy sauce and sugar together and pour over vegetables, stirring to coat.

Cook for another 5 minutes, then remove from heat and serve over a bed of cooked brown rice.
