It's not an exact recipe, per say, but I usually like to start with whatever is in my fridge. After gathering the rice, the peppers, and the rest of my vegetables. I cut, cut, cut while my rice boils, boils, boils. A quick saute with a touch of soy sauce--oops, there's none--salt, paper, and some fish sauce to round it all out. Add the cabbage last and you're set for a nice stir fry, light on the stomach, and light on the wallet! (I have no idea what I'm writing -_-)
@Kimbler Even if you had no idea just what you were doing, it turned out well. I like that the freeness of making this dish for you shows through the style of your words. Well done! And thank you for sharing.
"In three minutes, you can have a perfectly cooked portion of mac 'n cheese, just try it!" Perfect or not, I don't care, mostly the fact that it can be cooked in a microwave, and in under 5 minutes, makes it the perfect study meal. Rip, fill, swirl, cook. Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait. Open, pour, mix, swirl, Wait. Eat.
