veggie fried rice

I am going through a vegetable fried rice kick right now. (except it's not actually fried) I am so into this filling and delicious dish. This meal reminds me of when I was a kid and my parents  would occasionally let us get Chinese take out. Except when you order this at a restaurant, you don't know exactly what it's in it- probably lots of oil and sodium. Now that I have been making it at home, I know just what is in it and that it's all really good for me. 

I N G R E D I E N T S

1 1/2 cups of rice (preferably brown)
1 carrots, peeled and chopped
1 cup of frozen edamame
1 cup of frozen peas
1 cob of corn
3 Leeks, thinly sliced
1 small red pepper, chopped
3 tbs low sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons of sesame oil
a drizzle of peanut oil


R E C I P E

Cook the rice in boiling water for 30 minutes until the water has evaporated
Chop your vegetables and cut the corn off the cob. 
Heat the peanut oil in a pan. Add the corn, carrots and red pepper. Let cook for three minutes, stirring occasionally
Once the rice has cooked, stir the rice, leeks, edamame, peas and soy sauce in with the other vegetables
Once the frozen veggies have warmed, add the sesame oil and stir
Put the rice and veggies into a serving bowl
Chop and sprinkle on the green parts of the leek and serve

enjoy!
