Sesame Stir Fry

Lynne, Shelley 33 Delicious and Nutritious Vegetarian Main Entree Recipes

1 1/ 2 cups vegetable broth
3/ 4 cup long-grain white rice, uncooked
1 tablespoon butter 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
2 tablespoons peanut oil
1/ 2 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces
1 large red bell pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 large yellow onion, sliced
2 cups sliced mushrooms
2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger root
1 teaspoon minced garlic
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil

Turn the oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the butter, rice and vegetable broth in a saucepan and cover. Allow it to come to a boil on high. Turn the heat to low and let it simmer for 15 minutes. The liquid will need to fully absorb.   On a small baking pan, you will need to spread the sesame seeds out and allow them to bake for 5 minutes until they are golden brown. Sit this aside when it is done.   Heat the peanut oil in a wok or large skillet on medium. Allow it to become very hot and add the onion, mushrooms, asparagus, bell pepper, ginger and garlic. Stir fry it for about 5 minutes until the vegetables are tender, but still crisp. Add the soy sauce and cook for about 30 seconds and remove it from the heat. Then stir in the sesame oil and seeds. Serve it over rice!
