Directions

In a large skillet, heat the oil until hot. Then add the asparagus, scallions, celery, spinach, peas and carrots. Stir quickly for 2 minutes. Add the garlic, lemon juice, soy sauce and pepper. Continue stirring for 1 minute. Add the rice, mixing well until heated through. Serve at once.

VARIATION: Mix all the ingredients together in a rectangular baking pan. Sprinkle with 1 C. of fresh or canned chopped tomato and 1/2 C. of freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes at 375 degrees. Remove the foil and continue baking for another 5 minutes, until the casserole is nicely browned on top. Two cups of diced, cooked chicken, meat or sausage can be added to make this an easy one-pan main dish.
