Carrie Underwood’s Stir-Fry Recipe
My Favorite Lunch: Quick-and-Easy 10-Minute Stir-Fry
Prep time: 10 minutes
Total time: 10 minutes
Serves 1 as a main dish or 2 as a side dish
– 1 serving Gardein Beefless Tips (10 pieces) or your favorite lean protein
– Olive oil spray (optional)
– 1/4 cup chopped yellow onion
– 1 (6-ounce) bag or ½ (12-ounce) bag fresh or frozen vegetable stir-fry mix (any type—I like the one with broccoli, broccoli slaw, and snap peas)
– 1 cup cooked brown rice (if you don’t want to make it from scratch, use Minute Ready to Serve brown rice)
– Bragg Liquid Aminos or low-sodium soy sauce
– Any other seasonings you like, such as garlic powder, teriyaki sauce, Chinese five-spice powder, or chili sauce
1. In a small pan, lightly sauté the Beefless Tips over medium heat according to the package instructions, or cook your favorite protein in a bit of olive oil spray—you won’t need to use much if you use a nonstick pan. When the protein is almost cooked through, add the onion and cook until it is soft, 4 to 5 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine the veggies and 1/4 cup water. Bring the water to a simmer over medium heat, then cover and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Turn off the heat.
3. Add the protein-onion mixture to the pan with the veggies, then add the rice. Stir in the liquid aminos and any other seasonings you like and cook over low heat until the rice is warmed through. Serve immediately.
