- 1/2 cup peas(frozen)
- 1-2 tbsp Earth Balance Butter spread(Dairy /Soy-free)
- 1 tbsp Olive Oil

- 1 clove of garlic minced or 1 tsp gar;lic salt
- 1-3/4 cup of Black Rice (substitute Jasmine, Yellow,Basmati, Brown , or Wild rice)

- Salt & Pepper to taste
- Dash or two,three,four, five Sriracha Sauce~

First thing first ….Make the rice ….
Follow your rice cooking instructions …
I’m trying something new to me, Black Rice -Authentic ~Super-food that is high in anthocyanin antioxidants…..it has higher amounts of vitamin E, contains 18 amino acids, iron, copper& carotene to name a few. Good for the kidneys,stomach & liver. It has a mild nutty taste in comparison to brown rice.
*Note : Make sure you are using a Gluten -free Black rice, some Chinese Black rice contain a high gluten content!!!!
After the rice is done cooking set aside …..
Wash, Chop & Slice all vegetables ….
I cook my vegetables in a “SOMEWHAT” orderly fashion
in a pan(or you can use a wok) to stir-fry.
I coat the pan with some Olive oil …
Once the mushrooms shrink in size then I add the Earth Balance spread with garlic salt.
(I was out of fresh garlic so had to compromise)
I removed the mushrooms & set aside….
Let the Stir-fry begin !!!!!
Now for the remaining Veggies …
I added the sesame oil to the carrots & peppers
Cook for 3-4 minutes …..
Onions go in …..
I used fresh corn from the cob,
thanks to my Sous chef …a.k.a.-Hubby…lol!!!
In they go along with frozen peas
Lastly I added the chopped Broccoli
and in goes back the mushrooms !!!
While the Veggies are stir-frying ……
I was making my soy -free Teriyaki sauce….
While my husband is using a brand Teriyaki sauce,
I replace The CoCo Natura -Organic Coconut Seasoning Sauce
in any recipe that calls for soy sauce.
This has a high source of liquid Aminos
65% less sodium compared to soy sauce!
Honey added to the Coconut Seasoning Sauce
Sesame oil & brown sugar went in …..
Corn starch ….
Blended all together …Done !
Add the “soy-free”
To the stir-fried Veggies !
(After the fact my hubby took his veggie portion out )
This is where the “yin and yang”
Comes into play….
My husband using traditional Teriyaki sauce & for me its soy-free)
Stir-fry for another 3-4 minutes
All the veggies are well coated with flavor !!!!
Add Salt & Pepper
I always use freshly ground !!!
I also use Pink Himalayan Salt !!!
Plate up the Black rice ….
Top with the stir-fry veggies …
Garnish with Roasted sesame seeds ….
I top my stir-fry with a lil HEAT !!!
Sriracha Sauce !!!!
