Garden Fresh Fried Rice


I was not in the mood to fuss over dinner tonight. I didn’t even want to cook, but I had a lot of fresh veggies calling to me:  broccoli and bok choy from my garden, asparagus from Filasky’s Produce, and sundry other veggies including carrots, celery, and onions. I decided on a stir fry, the next best thing to not cooking. What’s more, the colors always make me happy.

I decided to try a different sauce combination (soy sauce, red wine vinegar, honey and tomato).

Then my 6 year old came in, he wanted eggs, so the plan changed to accommodate all of us.  Now I would make a very veggie fried rice.

By the way…we really liked the new sauce.  It gave the fried rice a great flavor.
