Scale

Ingredients

For the Rice

  • 2 cups uncooked brown rice
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon butter

For the Orange Sauce

  • 6 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 4 tablespoons orange juice
  • 3 teaspoons orange peel
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoon sugar

For the Stir Fry

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large red bell peppers
  • 4 large carrots, bias sliced
  • 1 head broccoli, cut
  • 8 spring onions, bias sliced
  • 4 zucchinis, sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame seeds (for garnish)

Instructions

Making the Rice

  1. Put four cups of water in a covered pot.  Bring to a boil.  Stir in the 2 cups of rice.  Reduce temperature to a simmer.  Cook for 35 minutes with the lid somewhat askew, or until done.  Remove from heat.  Let stand for 5 minutes.  Fluff with a fork and stir in 2 tablespoons of butter.

Preparing the Orange Sauce

  1. Zest one medium orange.  In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, orange juice, cornstarch, sugar, and orange zest.

Cooking the Stir Fry

  1. Wash all the vegetables.  Slice the red peppers into 1 1/2 inch strips.
  2. Peel the carrots and cut 1/2 inch slices on the bias.
  3. Slice the zucchinis into 1/4 inch coins.  Cut coins in half, if they’re too large.
  4. Cut the spring onions on the bias in 1 inch lengths.
  5. Cut the broccoli into smaller florets and rinse.
  6. In two large saucepans, or a wok, heat the oil over high heat.  Add the carrots and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  7. Add the rest of the vegetables and cook for 6 minutes.
  8. Make a hole in the middle.  Whisk the orange sauce in the bowl, then pour it in the hole.  Let it bubble and thicken up.
  9. Mix the orange sauce in with the rest of vegetables and cook for a minute.
  10. Serve hot over warm brown rice.  Garnish with a sprinkle of sesame seeds.

  1. This orange sauce tastes good on top of all the soft veggies. 🍚 I like the orange carrots and broccoli. There is so much flavor in this stir fry–it just makes you want more. I could easily have two servings of this divine stir fry! 🥕

  2. The vegetables are really tasty with the orange 🍊 sauce on top of the rice 🍚. The peppers and the carrots 🥕 and the broccoli are still firm and the sesame seeds add a neat touch.
