Easy Weeknight meal

Stir Fry with Sesame Cilantro Rice

1 cup white rice
2 1/2 cup water
6 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
Veggies of your choice (I used broccoli, red pepper and shredded cabbage)
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, diced
2 tbsp olive oil
protein of your choice (I used beef)

In a frying pan heat olive oil and add protein, cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 10 minutes (depending on meat, if tofu may be a little less time, if chicken maybe a little more time). Remove from pan and set aside. Next add onions and garlic and saute for 2 minutes, add the rest of vegetables and saute for another 5 minutes. Add protein back into the pan and add 3 tbsp of sesame oil and soy sauce, stir and remove from heat.

In a saucepan add rice and water and cook on low head until tender. Add remainder of sesame oil and cilantro stir until well combined.
