I officially got back to work this week! I’ve freelanced for the past two years, which was great and all, but, I really missed human interaction! I joined the team over at Chewse as an account manager! Luckily, I get to be surrounded by my first love, food, every single day!
Now that I’m back to working a 9-5, I’m looking for quick, easy and healthy meals to make for dinner! I partnered up with Veetee to show off one of my favorite shortcuts — using microwaveable rice! Veetee has a ton of varieties of rice! They have everything from jasmine rice to Basmati and Wild Rice Mix. They also sell rice in various flavors like Thai Lime & Herb and Spicy Spanish Style Rice. You can find Veetee Rice at your local grocery store or on Amazon! Using pre-cooked/microwaveable rice shaves off 20-30 minutes from your meal and gets dinner on the table faster!
Instead of nuking my rice in a microwave, I used the pre-cooked rice to make a veggie-loaded stir-fry! I added corn and bell pepper, but feel free to use whatever veggies you have on hand! You could also add a beaten egg to the fried rice while it’s cooking to add some more protein.
This recipe is so easy and only requires a few prepped ingredients! I love how there is a nice balance of salty, sweet and spicy in this dish- give it a try!
