  • 4 cups leftover cooked brown rice
  • 1 cup chopped cabbage
  • 1/2 red bell pepper (diced)
  • 1 cup snow peas (halved if you prefer - I do!)
  • 3 green onions (diced)
  • 1/2 cup sweet green peas
  • 3 tbsp tamari or soy sauce (use tamari to ensure this is a gluten free dish)
  • 4 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 3 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 3 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • a few shakes of sriracha
  • 1-2 tsp sesame oil (optional)
  1. Whisk together the tamari, hoisin, rice wine vinegar, garlic, ginger, and sriracha in a small bowl or measuring cup and set aside.
  2. In a hot skillet over medium-high heat, add 2 tbsp of water, cabbage, pepper and snow peas. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently, just to start to soften. You want the veggies to retain their fresh flavor and still give a nice crunch, so don't overcook!
  3. Add the green onions and sweet peas and cook another minute while stirring.
  4. Add the sauce to the veggie and stir to coat.
  5. Add the rice and stir until evenly coated in the sauce. Continue cooking a few minutes to heat through.
  6. Take off heat and finish with a drizzle of sesame oil if desired.
  7. Serve with a few more dashes of sriracha if you like the heat!
