I love harvest time. I go to the farm every Saturday morning and pick up all my produce before shopping. There is nothing comparable to farm grown veggies. They are the best! Lately I make some of my dinners with just vegetables, and here is one. Hope you enjoy it!


  • 2 cups long grain white rice, cook according to package
  • 2 large cloves garlic, sliced thin
  • few slices red onion
  • 1 summer (yellow) squash, sliced
  • 1 zucchini, sliced
  • handful sliced carrots
  • handful fresh yellow beans, cut in half
  • broccoli, cut in pieces
  • 4-6 large basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • seasonings to taste; start with an 1/8 of a tsp. season salt, black pepper, and a pinch of thyme


  1. Prepare your rice as directed.
  2. Wash and prepare all vegetables.
  3. Ad
  4. Using a large covered skillet, heat olive oil. Then add all vegetables. Stir until sizzling.
  5. Add chicken broth and seasonings. Let simmer for a few minutes or until the veggies are just cooked, but crisp.
  6. Put rice in the center of your plate or bowl. Add all these succulent vegetables over the rice. Enjoy :)

If you use low sodium soy sauce, you might want to season to taste with a tad bit of salt just after adding the sesame oil.


  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 small head cabbage, trimmed and sliced
  • 2 Tbsp, soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp, rice vinegar
  • sesame oil to taste


Heat the oil in a wok or large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and saute until softened and translucent. Stir in garlic and saute for one minute. Stir in half of the cabbage and saute until it is barely beginning to wilt then stir in the rest of the cabbage and continue to saute until barely beginning to wilt.

Add soy sauce and vinegar and cook until cabbage has wilted to taste, remove from heat, add sesame oil to taste and serve.

have you ever tried 2 slices of bacon instead of olive oil for taste?

Sounds yummy! A Change from my favorite fried with bacon grease, but with bacon prices these days, the olive and sesame oils will work. Thanks Deeli, GG Vi

Hi Fuzzytufts! Thanks for sharing your feedback!

I have indeed tried it with bacon. As a matter of fact Great Granny Vi shared her favorite fried cabbage with bacon recipe with us here at ThriftyFun about a year or so ago and it's indeed yummy!

What I like about this particular recipe is that it uses oriental flavorings that would be more in keeping to serve with oriental themed meals. :-)

Mmm, if you didn't want to use bacon and wanted to keep to an Asian theme,

Chinese style barbecued pork (the kind that is served with hot mustard) would be yummy to add here too. Assuming you ever had leftover barbecued pork, which never happens in our house :)

Or maybe a bit of sesame oil. Can you tell I'm hungry? I'll have to play around the next time I have some cabbage.

This dish is nice to eat with lamb, ham, fish or even chicken.

About 20 minutes before serving, remove any large leaves from broccoli and trim ends if stalks are tough or woody and cut into 2x1/2 inch pieces. Tear romaine into bite size pieces; set aside. In pan over medium heat, fry bacon slices, diced, just until crisp.

In a small skillet, stir fry asparagus and peas in butter and oil for 2 minutes. Add ginger and garlic powder; stir-fry 1 minutes longer. Combine soy sauce and water; stir into skillet. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

I found a recipe for tofu stir fry. It's delicious, no matter what veggies you want to use. Stir fry veggies in oil, with the white parts of green onion for one minute. Add all but 1 Tbsp of of broth.
