I wanted to create something quick, healthy and easy for my family as a side dish on those hot summer nights. It doesn't take long to cook, so it doesn't heat up my kitchen too much! also great at BBQs and delicious served with fish. This rice dish is also very colorful- great for eating with the eyes.
Dice all vegies, keeping carrot separate from the others. Simmer carrot, peas and corn in a saucepan until cooked.
Fry capsicum, zucchini and onion in large frypan. When carrot, peas and corn are cooked add to the frypan with other vegies and fry for two minutes.
Meanwhile, heat the rice in the microwave according to the packet directions. Add to the vegie mixture and fry for 1 minute. Serve immediately.
Soy sauce is a great flavor boost if you find the rice toO bland. Rice stores well in the fridge for 1-2 days. If I am expecting more people, I will cook two packets of rice so that there is enough to go around.
