  • 3 cups cooked rice (from 1 cup raw rice)
  • 2 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 5-6 cups vegetables, cut into small pieces (e.g. green onion, peppers, mushrooms, green beans, broccoli, etc)

Peanut Sauce

  • 3 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoon Soy sauce, low sodium
  • 2 tablespoon sweet chili sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili flakes or more, to taste


  • MAKE THE PEANUT SAUCE: Whisk together all peanut sauce ingredients until smooth in a measuring cup or small bowl. Set aside.
  • STIR FRY VEGETABLES AND RICE: Heat oil to medium high in a wok or frying pan (I use a non stick wok). Stir fry vegetables for 8-9 minutes or until tender crisp. Add rice and continue to cook for a few minutes while stirring until heated through.
  • ADD PEANUT SAUCE: Pour half the peanut sauce on to the vegetable rice. Mix through. Taste and add more as you need or pass the extra sauce to drizzle on once plated. Serve with lime wedges if desired.
