Rice, peas, and mushrooms (Chinese style) is a delicious (no-fried) fried rice vegan recipe that will serve 6-8 adults as a main meal with a salad. We cook this recipe in either our wok or in a large covered baking dish in our microwave oven. It is also great for leftovers and can be stored in the refrigerator for a few days in the covered baking dish.

We begin by placing the rice pot on the stovetop with 4 cups of water and turning the heat to high until the water boils.

While the water is heating, we measure out the rice, and wash the celery and mushrooms, and peel the onions, garlic, and carrots. Slice the carrots and mushrooms, dice the celery and onions, crush the garlic, and place all but the mushrooms in the covered dish or wok (if cooking in a wok, stir-fry in a little water).

When the rice water begins to boil, add the rice, cover, and lower the heat to simmer until all the water is absorbed into the rice.

Pre-cook the carrots, garlic and onions until the onions begin to get translucent.

Add the peas, mushrooms, ginger, and hot pepper to the pre-cooked veggies and cook until the peas are thoroughly defrosted and hot, mixing as necessary to ensure uniform cooking (the mushrooms should all be cooked).

When the veggies are cooked, turn off the heat, add the soy sauce or Bragg Aminos, smoke flavor, and rice, and thoroughly mix into the veggies.

Serve and enjoy.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
