Not-Fried Rice

So when we go out for Chinese I always like to get the fried rice. I just like the extra veggies and bit of seasoning over the plain white rice. I don't usually have cooked rice left over to make fried rice so here's what I make instead.

Not-Fried Rice

1 tbsp. olive oil
1 cup uncooked rice
2 cups liquid (If I have leftover chicken broth, I use that and add water to make up the rest.)
1/2 cup diced veggies, (I usually use carrots and frozen peas, but last time I added peeled, diced broccoli stems too)
1 tbsp. soy sauce

In a sauce pan, add oil and rice. Saute until translucent. Add liquid, veggies and soy sauce. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
