I have days when things just don’t fall into place from the time I wake up to the time I hit the bed.

Despite my problems, I have to feed my family(we all do right?)my kids especially have only one thing on their mind and that’s,

 

“what’s for dinner?” or lunch or breakfast……

And for times like these, I usually use my short cut meals.

And when I say short cut I mean using the least amount of ingredients.

 

An 8-ingredient recipe and most of them are in your kitchen pantry.

This easy rice pilaf dish only needs 8 ingredients, you can certainly add more but I’ve intentionally kept it simple and easy.

It’s why I’ve used a pack of frozen vegetables.

Whether you serve the mixed vegetable rice as a simple meal or side-dish for an elaborate meal, this vegetable recipe will definitely come in handy.

 

Thank you note to my readers.

Making vegetarian rice pilaf
with freshly chopped vegetables.

 

As I mentioned earlier, the reason I am using frozen vegetables is to cook the vegetarian, vegan fried rice as quickly as possible. 

You will need less than 30 minutes to make this fried rice. 

But you can also use fresh vegetables(carrots, sweet corn, peas) chop them and make the fried rice from scratch.
