For those nights that you can’t be bothered, or don’t have the time to be cooking up a storm in the kitchen, we present to you our healthy quick freezer aisle options at WholeLife. We’ve kicked off this new freezer series with a delicious bowl of vegetarian dumplings with a serve of garlic broccoli and healthy fried rice.

Prep: 10 minutes

Cooking: 10 minutes

Serves: 2


 .1 packet microwave brown rice

.1 packet Golden Pig & Co, Tofu & Shiitake Mushroom Dumplings

.3 cups frozen broccoli florets

.1/2 cup frozen corn

.1 clove garlic

.1 spring onion

.1 tbsp teriyaki sauce, we have used the Absolute Organic Coconut Amino Sauce

.1 tsp Nutra Organics vegetable broth powder

Let’s Begin:


1.Fill a pot with water and bring to the boil. Boil the dumplings according to the packet instructions.


2.Whilst you are waiting for the vegetarian dumplings to cook, heat a wok with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the frozen broccoli into the wok and start to stir fry, when the broccoli begins to soften, mince the garlic and add into the pan.


3.Now you can add the teriyaki sauce to the wok, keep frying until the broccoli is cooked through.


4.Set aside the broccoli in a bowl. We will use the wok to cook the fried rice so no need to clean it yet.


5.Heat the microwave rice according to the packet instructions, whilst the rice warms, finely chop the spring onion.


6.Reheat the wok with a drizzle of olive oil, remove the rice from the packet into the wok and begin to fry, breaking apart the rice with your spoon.


7.Add to the rice your corn, spring onion, vegetable powder. Mix and stir fry the mixture, season with salt and pepper to taste.


8.Once the rice is thoroughly stir fried, warmed through and has a little bit of nice crispiness it is done. At this stage you could whisk an egg and cook it through the rice for extra protein if you wanted to.


9.When the dumplings have finished cooking, drain them and serve hot. You can also serve some more of the teriyaki sauce on the side for dipping.
