I love the word sizzle. When I whipped up this recipe and heard the sizzle sounds I got all excited to name this recipe Chicken and Veggie Sizzle Rice. This recipe takes no time at all to prepare. Use whatever veggies and protein you have on hand. Feel free to make it vegan too with tofu, tempeh or just veggies. Your choice…

Let’s sizzle!

There has been food every where. This being a compilation of many goodies I have been whipping up.

  • 1/2 cup shelled Edamame
  • a handful of Kale, finely chopped
  • a few pinches ground Ginger
  • a few pinches Garlic Sea Salt

  • a few teaspoons Thai Red Curry Paste (to taste)
  • 1/4 cup [light unsweetened Coconut Milkhttp://astore.amazon.com/familyfreshcooking-20/detail/B002FJU0KO]

  • Optional Garnish or Mix In's
  • garnish with some sautéed Carrots

If you want a touch of sweetness add the stevia or honey last, to taste.

I’m always up for a good stir fry rice – it’s the easiest way to use up little bits and pieces of veggies and proteins in my fridge. Hope your cookbook shoot is going well.

Do you think it would still be good if I used quinoa instead of rice? I made a huge batch a couple days ago and want to make a couple meals out of it!

Grace, I LOVE quinoa. I say give it a whirl :)
