Oriental Vegetable and Rice Bowl


Oriental Vegetable and Rice Bowl

gives a change to your menu.  Do you serve mostly southwestern, southern, midwestern meals, Italian, Indian, or Mexican cuisines?  Here is a recipe for Oriental Vegetable and Rice Bowl. As cooks, it is so easy to get into the habit of fixing the same thing over and over particularly if your family is busy and on the go.  I have found by serving one type of cuisine, there is a likelihood of having all the ingredients. However, when you like to cook, it is challenging and fun to try something different.

Some tips regarding Oriental cuisine:

1. Fast cooking at a high temperature is a key to Oriental cuisine.
2. The chief protein in the Oriental diet is the soybean: as in soybean oil, soy milk and soy sauce.
.3. The rapid, minimal cooking helps preserve the flavor, color and texture in Oriental cooking.

This Oriental Vegetable and Rice Bowl is a simple lunch or dinner dish.

 Add a fruit gelatin salad, crusty bread and fruit cup for a quick week day dinner.
