This recipe features a variety of different colored vegetables, which are packed with antioxidants that keep you healthy.

Not all soy sauces are gluten free, so check the label. Tamari is usually safe.


Makes 3 Servings

  • diced bell peppers or carrots (1 cup)
  • corn kernels or green peas, or a combination of both (1 cup)
  • sliced green onions or chives; if using chives, add at the end of cooking (1/2 cup)
  • diced celery (1/2 cup)
  • precooked brown rice or quinoa (5 cups)
  • diced precooked potatoes; or 1/2 cup more rice (1 cup)
  • tamari (1/4-1/3 cup)
  • water (1-2 tbsp.)
  • sea salt (to taste)
  • freshly ground black pepper (to taste)


  1. In a large nonstick skillet over high or medium-high heat, combine the bell peppers or carrots, corn or green peas, green onions and celery, stirring occasionally.

  2. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, then add the rice, potatoes (if using), and 1/4 cup of the tamari.

  3. Cook for another 3 to 4 minutes, stirring a couple of times. Add the water if the mixture is sticking.

  4. Heat the rice through, and toast it a little in spot, if desired. If using chives, add those and stir. Taste, add the remaining tamari, and season with salt and black pepper, if desired.
