Tips and Variations
Tips and Variations
  • To cook the brown rice, follow the package directions or see the Wild or Brown Rice recipe at z.umn.edu/31as.
  • Leftover rice works well in this recipe.
  • If you don't have low-sodium soy sauce, use 1 1/2 teaspoons regular soy sauce plus 1 1/2 teaspoons water.
  • If desired, add 1 cup cooked meat, fish, or chicken.
  • This meal is a great way to start having meatless meals at least once a week.
