Yellow Rice

  • Bring all ingredients except rice to a boil.
  • Add the rice, and reduce heat to simmer. Cover and cook over medium-low heat until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, about 40–45 minutes.
  • Check after 30 minutes. If necessary, add more liquid.


  • Dissolve the cornstarch in the broth and set aside.
  • Heat oil, over high heat, in a wok or heavy sauté pan. Add broccoli and onions and stir fry for about a minute. Add the bok choy and cabbage and stir-fry for another minute. Add garlic and stir-fry for about 20 seconds.
  • Add soy sauce, vinegar, and cornstarch/broth mixture, and stir until sauce is thickened and coats the veggies.
  • Pour over the rice and serve.

Serves 4. Prep time, 15 minutes; cooking time, 45 minutes.
