Veggie Brown Rice

This simple side dish has the flavor of fried rice but is better for you. It would pair well with a meaty entree.

    This turned out great even with the substitutions I had to make. I didn't have teriyaki or soy sauce on hand so I used hoisin sauce instead. It really was similar to fried rice. I'm eager to try it again with the correct sauces. I also used fresh carrots, sliced very thinly, and simply sauteed them with the cabbage mixture and left out the mushrooms since my husband doesn't care for them. I think I will add a little chicken to this next time and serve it with egg rolls for a complete meal.It is now almost two years later and I wanted to add to my review. I have made this rice with the correct sauces and it still tastes good. My personal preference is to use the hoisin sauce because I think that adds more flavor. I have now been adding some scrambled eggs to this and making it our main meal.
