Simple Veggie Stir Fry

We're always looking for simple meals. A lot of raw recipes tend to be complicated, incorporate hard-to-find ingredients, and make it difficult to keep costs down. A favorite, simple meal of mine is just a basic stir fry.  The key to this is not to cook the veggies for too long. You want to maintain as many of the nutrients as possible while still getting a hearty, warm dish.

This recipe is for 2 servings.

1/2 cup uncooked brown rice (& water according to package instructions)
1 tsp Smart Balance "butter"
1/2 chopped onion
1 Handful of green beans
1/4 red pepper
1 yellow squash
1/2 tomato
1/4 cup crushes walnuts
Soy sauce to taste

1. Prepare rice. While rice is cooking, do the following.

2. In a medium heat skillet saute onions in "butter".

3. Add green beans, red pepper, and yellow squash. Cover and allow to cook for 2 minutes.
4. After the 2 minutes, add chopped tomato and crushed walnuts. Sprinkle in a little soy sauce so the veggies can absorb it.

5. When the rice is complete, add it to a bowl and top off with your veggie mixture. Add a little more soy sauce for taste.

What simple recipes do you have on hand for a quick, healthy meal?
