Hi, I'm Diane Hoch of The Food Evolution. Today, we're talking about vegetarian daycare dishes. We are going to be making an easy stir fry rice. This is a sure hit among kids; I know I have three kids of my own who just love this dish and have since they were small. Easy ingredients; short grain brown rice, chickpeas and then our veggies are broccoli, carrots, onions, garlic, scallions and of course with the stir fry rice, you need some scrambled eggs. In the end, a little tamari, which is a gluten-free soy sauce and we're good to go. So, the way we're going to make this is in a sautee pan. Over medium heat, we're going to use our oil; some olive oil in the pan. And then, we're going to sautee some onions. So, while those are sauteeing, I'll tell you, we already cooked the brown rice, we use the short grain brown rice 'cause it's really pasta like and I find kids like that. You can certainly substitute with a long grain brown rice as well if you want. We're going to add some garlic; I love garlic. Another wonderful food as we know, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, healthy food all around. So, the garlic we're going to sautee in there. Then, we're going to add some carrots. Now, I diced the carrots small because think about it, this is a daycare dish; so, you're going to have small kids you know. You want to think about the size of everything that you're making with the dish. You know, we need a rainbow of colors in our diet, and so do our children. This is what's going to help them grow healthy and strong. Broccoli actually is a kid favorite. Kids do like broccoli. So, I like to add it a little bigger; they like finger foods, so they'll leave and pick out the broccoli and eat it. And we're adding the chickpeas in. I'm going to add the scrambled eggs, which I scrambled before on a separate dish. You know, look at those pretty colors; I love that. Our brown rice, pre-cooked already. We're going to add in the tamari. Tamari is a gluten-free soy sauce. So, you know, there's a lot of talk about a celiac and wheat intolerance, gluten intolerance and so soy sauce has an option that's called tamari. It's a gluten-free soy sauce, which is really nice. I'm Diane Hoch from The Food Evolution. I hope you've enjoyed this video, I hope you try this recipe and I hope everyone loves it. Thank you.
