Stir-Fry Rice with Carrots and Broccoli Recipe

Stir-Fry Rice with Carrots and Broccoli
I have always used broccoli and carrots in stir-fries and pasta. But recently, I discovered that they also taste great with rice.

Once I discovered that little secret, I started some experiments involving these two core ingredients. I’d already decided that I’m not going to spent hours in the kitchen, so I wanted to keep the recipe as simple as possible.

After a few tweaks, I came up with this easiest and delicious combination of broccoli, carrots, and rice. This broccoli carrot rice ticks all the boxes for the right kind of healthy meal. Furthermore, it’s delicious as it is, but you could add in any kind of protein you like. You could even enjoy this rice with your favorite curry.

Seriously, what’s not to like about this winner meal. I mean, it’s the tastiest way to sneak some veggies into your diet.

This was a delicious side dish. I love the wonderful flavor from the garlic in the rice.
