Ultimate Veggie Fried Rice


2 TBS olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup diced carrot
1/4 cup diced celery
1 tsp herbs de Provence (mixture of oregano, sage, basil, marjoram, thyme, etc.)
2 cups cooked brown rice
2 cups other leftover vegetables (pre-cooked), beans, etc.
Directions: Heat skillet over medium-high heat, and add oil. Sauté onion, garlic, carrot, celery, herbs de Provence, and add slat 10 to 15 minutes, or until well browned. Add a little more oil if pan seems dry. Add rice, and stir-fry 5 minutes, or until mixture is hot and well combined. Rice is now ready to be served, but if you have some time before your meal, turn heat to low, add a little more oil to pan, and let rice sit undisturbed 7 to 10 minutes, or until browned. If it begins to stick, scrape it up, stir tasty brown bits in, and continue browning with a little more oil. The more time and energy you spend a this stage, the tastier the rice will be. If using leftovers, add them just before serving and continue to heat thoroughly.
