Yummy Yummy Broccoli, Zucchini and Rice

Inspired by a recipe at http://veganawakening.wordpress.com/. But I have changed it up a LOT! This is a super-yummy recipe. Even Prince Charming said it was really good. It honestly tasted like Beef and Broccoli without all that silly beef nonsense.

1.5 cups cooked long grain rice
2 TBSP vegan margarine
2 - 3 Tbsp flour
2 cups vegetable stock
1 TBSP soy sauce
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1- 2 TBSP olive oil
1 small onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 crown broccoli chopped
1 small zucchini chopped
garlic powder to taste
salt & black pepper

Melt the margarine in a small pan over medium heat. Add the flour and cook for 3-5 minutes. Add the vegetable stock, water, soy sauce, and salt & pepper to taste pan. Bring to a simmer and let cook until the sauce begins to thicken. Stir in the nutritional yeast and let simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice and taste to adjust salt & pepper. Set aside.

Heat olive oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic, cook until softened. Add the broccoli and zucchini. Continue to cook until the vegetables are tender. Season with Garlic powder and salt and pepper to taste.

Combine the rice, broccoli mixture, and sauce. Serve and enjoy!
