Broccoli Rice – Sometimes, I Need A Change

Broccoli Rice – Sometimes, I Need A Change


Broccoli-Baby Carrot Rice:

Life is flying fast in a flash second. I am wondering why is that, each year goes faster than the last. All my days here are like in that movie, Groundhog day. Its so monotonous. I can’t say which incident happened when…nothing sensational is happening around me…and am kind of running out of juicy stories to embezzle in my memory. I guess, in future…I won’t be having anything nice to share about my life!!! Most of my routine are so predictable…I do the same kind of work day in day out!! Life used to be interestingly spicy as I was growing up in an unfamiliar atmosphere.

Well…I was chatting with a friend of mine, and she suggested me to take a new route to my work place, try joining the local music class, or trekking into the woods instead of walking in the park. Hmmm, doing something different no matter how small the change is…it certainly gives a kind of placeholder in the mind! So that I could distinguish each week from another.

That is why…I am into gardening this year! Last year my Dad helped me raise a beautiful flower bed around the house. And this year, our family friend Dennis has generously offered us a help to set up herbs garden in the backyard. So for the last few weeks we have been working on it….clearing the yard, buying mulch, planting the trees, weed eating, watering, cutting stones…for the first time, am seeing so many tools to clear up a patch of land!! It has been a good work out for all of us to shed that winter pounds! Well…possibly I could have fresh mint, basil, cilantro in future?! Yes, more cooking:)

Ingredients:

Basmati rice 1 cup – cooked
Onion 1 large chopped

Garlic 5 cloves chopped

Jalapenos 1 chopped

Tomato 1 chopped

Broccoli 1 small head – cut into florets

Baby carrots few

Salt
Turmeric 1 pinch

Oil few spoons.

Method:

Heat oil in a vessel. Add jalapenos, garlic, onions and tomatoes, stir-fry briefly.

Followed by vegetables and cooked rice.

Add enough salt and pinch of turmeric. Mix well and remove from heat.
