Spicy Veggies & Rice

Hey everyone! I wanted to share a quick recipe that I threw together for Shabbos dinner last night! I had never made this before, and I was just trying to see what I could come up with with the ingredients that I had on hand. It came out delicious though, and I see myself making it over and over and over again! You'll notice that some of the amounts are uh, less than exact. That's because I was just adding things in until I got the taste that I wanted. Sorry.

Spicy Veggies & Rice


  • 1/2 cup white rice
  • 1 cup sushi rice
  • 1 tsp chicken consume 
  • 1 lbs. mixed veggies (I used corn, carrots, beans and peas... frozen)
  • ~1/8 cup Sriracha (Rooster Sauce)
  • ~1/4 cup soy sauce
  • ~1/4 cup honey (possibly less)
  • Powdered ginger (a few good shakes)
  • Apple Cider Vinegar (A healthy splash)

Step 1. Prepare the rice with the consume, set aside.

Step 2. Prepare the veggies according to the instructions on the package. Or, if you're feeling fancy, go ahead and chop and steam some fresh veggies. I won't judge you.

Step 3.Make the sauce:
Combine all ingredients in a small frying pan (or pot), and heat over medium until everything is integrated. Then add in a slurry of 1 tsp cornstarch and 1 tsp water. Bump the heat up a bit until the sauce starts to thicken.

Step 4. This step is really complicated, so pay close attention: Put rice, veggies and sauce in a bowl. Stir.

That's it! You're done! Eat and enjoy! I served this as a side dish with some baked chicken, but I think that it could go nicely with so many delicious dinners (or snacks). I want to try it in burritos, or mixed with chicken and served that way. I've already had a request to bring this to a dinner party, so wish me luck on that.

Anyway, that's all for now, so enjoy! And if you make this recipe, let me know down in the comments! I'd love to see what you guys come up with!
