I love stir-fry recipes, especially when I’m out of ideas on what to cook for dinner. Usually I have some brown rice already steamed and stored in the freezer, which makes putting together a stir-fry quick and easy. Even if you don’t feel confident in the kitchen, you can make this recipe! Toss the vegetables in a little olive oil. Add the rice and seasonings, and you’ve got yourself a healthy, filling meal.
Brown Rice Stir-fry with Orange Sauce
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 cups chopped broccoli (stems and florets) or ½ 16-ounce bag cut broccoli, cooked
1 cup chopped carrots
½ cup chopped onion

¼ cup unsweetened orange juice
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger root or ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
3 cups cooked brown rice
>¼ cup toasted chopped walnuts
2 tablespoons chopped green onion
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and add broccoli, carrots, and onions. Cook until vegetables are softened, about 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Increase heat to medium high. Add Bragg’s Liquid Aminos, orange juice, garlic, ginger root, brown rice, walnuts, and green onions. Cook another 5 minutes or until heated through, and serve.
