1. Heat oil and add onions and celery. Cook for 5 minutes.
2. Add cooked, chilled brown rice, peas, and cooked Egg Beaters. Stir to combine.
3. Cook over low to medium heat until 165˚ F, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
4. Hold hot at 135˚ F or higher until ready to use.
SUGGESTION: Egg Substitute may be cooked in a steamtable pan in a steamer until an internal temperature of 160˚ F. Hold hot at 135˚ F or higher or chill immediately to 41˚ F and store refrigerated.
Bowl preparation:
1. Combine diced Morningstar Farms® Garden Veggie patties, cornstarch, and white pepper in a large bowl. Toss to mix.
