This Thai Peanut Stir Fry has a boatload of veggies and uses Gardein chicken strips as a substitute for chicken for a substantial and tasty Eastern flavored main course that can be enjoyed by vegans.
Team this stir fry with brown rice, flavored with cumin, spring onions and raisins and you will tempt even the most meat loving family member.

Thai Peanut Stir Fry Veggies and Brown Rice Sensation
I always cut up every thing before I start cooking. It seems to make the cooking process all come together faster.
Plus, you can do the cutting earlier in the day and then just stir fry right before you need the meal, so it is more relaxing for me to do it this way.

- I use a rice cooker to make my rice, so I do this first. Brown rice takes some time to cook so be sure to allow for this.
- Closer to the meal time, Heat the peanut oil in a skillet and add the onion, garlic, peppers, celery and carrots and cook until the onion is tender, about 1-2 minutes
- Add the remaining vegetables except for the peas and stir fry for another 2 or 3 minutes. Add the peas and stir for a few more minutes.
- Combine the peanut sauce, cumin, and sherry with the arrowroot and stir into the mixture. Keep stirring over medium heat until the sauce thickens.
- Serve with the brown rice.
