Peanuts add protein to this dish. Grilled tofus can be added to add even more protein.
Ingredients ( Serves 3 as a main dish)
1 cup Jasmine Rice, cooked
1/2 cup brown rice, cooked ( See Note 1)

Light soy sauce ( See note 3)
Extra coriander leaves for garnishing.
Heat a pot with the canola oil.
Fry the onion and then the garlic till golden brown.
Add in the mushroom seasonings and sambal oelek.
Fry for 2 mins and then add the carrots and celery. Let cook for 3-5 mins.
Add in the rice, nuts, coriander leaves and soy sauce to season. Combine well.
Serve warm garnished with coriander leaves.
1) Add the brown rice for that extra health punch. White Jasmine goes well on its own too. Just remember to cook both types of rice a little firm so it helps in the mixing. Otherwise, it will get all mashed up and end up looking like porridge!
2) You can omit the chilli paste if you prefer a less spicy dish.
3) I leave the amount of soy sauce to your preference.
