Vegetable Stir Fry

All the farmer's markets have ended so I've been using the vegetables I've frozen.  Here's a recipe that uses frozen broccoli and bell peppers.  Fresh vegetables would work too.

Vegetable Stir Fry

1 1/2 cups jasmine rice
4 eggs
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 onion, cut in half then sliced lengthwise
1 cup broccoli (I used frozen)
1 bell pepper, chopped (I used frozen)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup rice wine
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon corn starch

Put 1 1/2 cups rice in a small pot with lid.  Add 3 cups of water and bring to a boil, then turn down to very low (use a diffuser if necessary) and cook for 20 minutes.  While rice is cooking scramble eggs and cook in a small frying pan.  Also mix soy sauce and corn starch and set aside.  In a separate frying pan or wok, turn heat to med-high and add oil.  Once the pan is hot add the veggies (onions, broccoli, peppers, garlic).  Saute for about 3 minutes, until tender.  Then add rice wine and cook for another minute.  Next add soy sauce and corn starch mix.  Stir.  Finally mix in the cooked eggs and serve over rice.  I also add some chili garlic paste to make it a little spicy.
