Ingredients

    2 cups cooked long-grain rice (chilled)
    3 tbsp peanut oil (less if you want, but the rice will get sticky)

    1 cup frozen edamame (soy beans)
    1 cup frozen broccoli
    1 cup frozen peas
    1 cup frozen fava beans (broad beans)
    1 medium onion, sliced
    2 medium carrots, julienned
    2 closves garlic, minced
    0.5 skinless, boneless chicken breast, semi-frozen

    2 tsp dark soy sauce (or to taste)
    1 tsp cayenne (optional)
    1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
    1 tsp ground cumin
    1 tsp ground coriander
    0.5 tsp turmeric powder

    Sea salt to taste

Directions

- Heat the oil in a wok.
- When the oil is hot, toss in all the frozen veggies (watch out, they'll splatter, use a splatter screen if you have one!), cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until they look a little softer. If you're using sea-salt, add it now, so it gets some liquid to help it dissolve.
- Add the thinly sliced semi-frozen chicken breast (it slices very easily if slightly frozen!) and carrots. Saute, stirring occasionally, for 2 to 3 minutes until the chicken is no longer pink.
- Add onions and garlic. Cook for 1 minute.
- Reduce heat to medium-high.
- Add chilled rice, saute for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, breaking up any chunks of cold rice.
- Add soy sauce and spices. Stir well to coat food evenly.
- Serve hot.

This recipe needs no side dishes, unless you'd like to add in some more protein!

Makes 6 generous servings.
