I don’t think you could ask for a dish any easier or more delicious than this! Well… aside from my peanut sauce + spring rolls which I’m totally hooked on! 😛 But this is definitely a go-to for that leftover rice from takeout night. This is also, yet another meal that can be made on a tight budget. You get your veggies, make it healthier with coconut oil and you could even change it to brown rice if that’s more your taste preference. So it’s versatile, easy and cheap! I want you all to be firm believers that living a plant-based, vegan lifestyle can be affordable, healthy but delicious all at the same time!
