I cooked a cup of rice (use whatever rice you like best) then fried it in a little coconut oil. I added a tablespoon of soy sauce and a tablespoon of Braggs Liquid Amino Acids.
In another pan, I stir fried the following veggies-
- 1/2 head of shredded cabbage
- 2 diced carrots
- 1 sliced red pepper
- 1/4 cup sliced white onion
- 1/4 cup sliced radishes
- 1/4 cup of corn
- 1/2 cup small florets of cauliflower. I also peeled and diced the core of the cauliflower and tossed that in.
Finally, I sprinkled some dried cranberries on top of her lunch. My family loves dried cranberries and we add them to just about everything- salads, shepherd's pie, casseroles, sandwich spreads, home fries, baked goods, cold cereal and oatmeal.
Separately, I packed her some trail mix made of sunflower seeds, peanuts and raisins. She can have this for a snack, or sprinkle it on her meal for some crunch. I include a piece of fresh fruit to the meals I pack for my kids, usually a banana or apple.
As I delve further into this new world of plant based cooking, I will try to share the meals I make here on Sprouts.
