Garlic Fried Rice with Celery, Mushrooms, Broccoli, Bell Peppers, Carrots and Peas. Glutenfree Vegan Recipe

Print Friendly and PDF


It is one of those months. Random things to do and less time for the kitchen, photographing, editing and on the computer in general. This is a quick dinner from this week. Garlicky fried rice. You can switch out the Rice with cooked noodles for a fun stir fry. Add any veggies of choice and so on. This is also a recipe with approximate measurements:). The sauces, seasoning can be easily adjusted to taste. 

The other meal we had yesterday was this fun somewhat Mexican Pizza. A quick Black beans, tomato, jalapeno mish mash, topped with fresh tomato, red onion salsa on a Wheat Crust. Baked for 14 minutes at 400 degrees F, then topped with Jalapeno cheddary Nacho cheese(I dont remember the brand, we picked it up a wedge from whole foods), ranch dressing(I made a small portion of this recipe with just cashews) and chopped lettuce. Sliced and eaten within 5 minutes.



Pardon the low light phone pictures:)



I was going to talk about Ellen and Eggs, but things changed this week. So many innocent lives were taken and we are all looking for answers. This Write up by a mom of a mentally ill son sums it up. What we need along with gun control is a better mental health treatment and support system. It is a day of prayers and a day of extending any small help that we can and as she says "It is time for a meaningful, nation-wide conversation about mental health." The causes, the solutions, the help. 



What am I looking forward to in the new year, is beating my own anxiety issues to the curb. Getting my energy back and figuring out my balance. I am quite tired of walking into a store and losing balance just when I reach the back aisle, and not knowing if i will be able to walk back on my own. I think I might just learn how to walk blind folded, coz my eyes always give me bad feedback and screw up the darn balance. We shall see.
And hopefully finding a sweet little house with a yard, so I can start fostering again. It is difficult and much more tiring to house train the dogs without a yard. And cooking a lot more too. Spending time in the kitchen cheers up these dark and rainy days.
I am thankful for the continuous support from hubbs and from you all, the blogger community and everyone who drops by to read or comment or make my recipes. Have a great Holiday season you all.

  6. Fried rice is one of my absolute favorites! Adding "garlicky" pretty much clinches it. Best of luck with you goals for the new year - I'm thinking 2013 is going to be a good one for you.

  8. This garlic fried rice sounds delicious! I love coconut aminos, but tend to use them very sparingly as they are quite expensive where I can find them. This recipe looks like a good place to use them. I'll have to try this super garlicky twist on the classic fried rice soon!

    1. The garlic adds a lot of flavor, so you wouldnt need as much aminos or other sauces. Do give it a try!:)

  10. I'm still trying to figure out my own New Year's resolutions... It usually takes me the whole month of January to decide, since there's no rush. That way I end up with a truly well thought out and realistic goal, since there's nothing worse than working towards something impossible. Anyhow, regardless of that decision, I will definitely be making your fried rice at least once in 2013! It looks wonderful, and is full of veggies I almost always have on hand already.

  12. You're right, Ellen and eggs is super frustrating, but there's more to worry about right now. I went to my kid's school Christmas performance today and couldn't help tearing up when the Kindergartners and 1st graders were singing. So tiny and innocent. It's all so disturbing. You are right that the nation needs to look at all of the elements going on here.

    And as always, I love the fried rice. Extra garlic is just a bonus! xx

    1. I love garlicky thai fried rice and this is pretty much spot on. garlicky, fresh and crunchy.

      There are definitely so many elements which need attention and changes. Saw the NRA speech today. highly irresponsible.
