Wild Rice Stir Fry with Spring Root Veggies – For One!

To give you an idea of how much veg I used here’s a pic of the the turnip (I used half) and 2 yams – I used the pointy end of the cut yam. The dessert spoon is for comparison.

This is so delicious I have to share it with you!  Been getting veggie boxes delivered here, and got some small, white turnips.  Also some yams.  Decided to try a stir fry.  This is what I came up with.

  • Cook 1/2 cup of wild and whole grain brown rice in just over a cup of cold water.  Bring it to a boil uncovered, slap a lid on it and reduce heat to simmer.
  • Heat a non-stick skillet over high heat, reduce to a moderate heat, add a little oil and toss in 75-100 grams slivered tofu (thinly slice, then cut slices into strips).  Sprinkle with a pinch of dried, red-hot chilies.  Saute until the tofu is chewy.  About 7 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, slice about 1/2 a small white turnip into thin strips (about 1/4 – 1/2 inch).  You need about 1/3-1/2 a cup.  Do the same with some yam.
  • Chop a medium clove of garlic, and sliver about 1/4 – 1/3 cup of white onion and about a tablespoon of fresh ginger.
  • Remove tofu from pan and toss in the garlic and onion, toss it around for a moment, then add the turnip and yam.  Saute.  Drizzle in a little water to take off the heat so as not to burn the veg and garlic.
  • Add a little freshly ground sea salt and a dash or two of low sodium soya sauce.  Saute, tossing frequently and drizzling in water when needed.  You just want enough water to take the heat off the pan.
  • Reduce heat to medium low, add the tofu, and cook until the veggie are softened, then turn off the heat and wait till the rice is cooked.
  • Meanwhile soak about 2 Tablespoons wakami sea vegetable in a little water.
  • When the rice is cooked, add the rice to your veggie mix, add 2 Tablespoons shelled hemp seed, drain and add the wakame, and toss it all together, serve in a bowl and enjoy!

    Meal planning is my weakness. I’m proud that I planned this meal far enough in advance to take the home made baked beans out of the freezer to defrost. Did that this morning.  Wanted them to add to yesterday’s left-overs:…Read more ›
