Vegan Garlic Fried Rice with Celery, Mushrooms, Broccoli, Bell Peppers, Carrots and Peas | #vegan #glutenfree

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.

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.

    Delicious and easy! Chopping the veggies takes some time, of course, but once that is finished, you are eating in no time! I added red pepper flakes for a little kick, and didn’t add peas or protein because I ran out of room in my pan. I ended up taking half of the veggies out before adding the rice, and the result was perfection. (My fault – I had more than 2 cups of veggies.) I will start at step 7 to finishing cooking the second half of the veggies and rice, and this time will also add protein. I will definitely make this again!

    So delicious and simple. Im making this for the third time this evening. I dont have broccoli, but I’ll add extra of the other veg. Great way to use up leftover rice.

    Love the scale up feature for the portions! I made 6 portions and it was so yummy. I added shrimp in with the garlic took it out the pan and then cooked all the veggies, took that out then fried the rice and mixed all because it was a larger portion I had to do it this way but it worked. I also used white pepper and added some curry powder for even more flavor. It was a hit with the hubby and even my toddler 😉 I also tried you Indian style fried rice with the turmeric… that was also yummy.
