Stir-Fried Vegetables with Rice

I am planning on making Yummy Lentils for my lunch today. I will probably add mushrooms and maybe some hot peppers for some extra spiciness but I think it will be a super yummy lunch.

For supper I am planning:

Stir-Fried Vegetables with Rice

Makes 4 servings

1 cup water
1 carrot, cut into matchsticks
1 cup broccoli florets
1 cup cauliflower florets
1 teaspoon Vegetable Broth granules
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon maple syrup
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 onion, thinly sliced into half-moons
1 celery stalk, thinly sliced on the diagonal
1 green bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
2 cups cooked brown rice

In a saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add carrot, broccoli, and cauliflower. Cover and boil 3 minutes. Drain, pouring cooking liquid into a separate bowl. Add vegetable broth granules, soy sauce, and maple syrup to cooking liquid.

Heat a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil when pan is hot, then add onion, celery, and bell pepper and stir fry for 2 to 3 minutes. Add carrot, broccoli, and cauliflower and stir fry a minute more. Stir in sauce and let it bubble up, then remove pan from heat. Serve vegetables over rice.

**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
