Ingredients

Rice

  • 1 cup uncooked basmati rice
  • 2 cups water

Sauce

  • 1 (4.5-oz.) can Old El Paso™ Chopped Green Chiles
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh mint
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

Stir-Fry

  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 cups fresh small cauliflower florets
  • 1 small onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 2 medium zucchini, quartered lengthwise, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 2 cups shredded Chinese (napa) cabbage

Steps

  • 1
    Cook rice in 2 cups water as directed on package. Cover to keep warm.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in small bowl, combine all sauce ingredients; blend well. Set aside.
  • 3
    Heat oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add cauliflower and onion; cook and stir 2 minutes. Add zucchini and bell pepper; cook and stir 4 to 6 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender.
  • 4
    Stir sauce well. Add to vegetables in skillet; cook 2 to 4 minutes or until sauce is bubbly and thickened, stirring frequently. Stir in cabbage. Serve over rice. If desired, garnish with additional basil or mint.

  • The combination of sweet and hot flavors in this stir-fry is inspired by Thai cuisine. Not hot enough? Add a dab of Thai curry paste or a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes to the sauce.
  • Grown in the Himalayan foothills for thousands of years, basmati is a tender, fragrant long-grain white rice. Its nutty aroma and delicate texture are a result of aging the rice to reduce its moisture.
  • Check the Asian growers at your local farmer's market for Thai basil or cinnamon basil to use instead of regular basil.
