  2. Have all of your vegetables prepared and ready to stir fry quickly.
  3. Heat a wok or large frying pan over high heat.
  4. Sauté the oil, chili, onion, garlic, and pepper for 2 minutes or until they begin to soften.
  5. Add the beans, red bell pepper, zucchini, and broccoli, and stir-fry for another 4 - 5 minutes or until tender but still crispy and colorful.
  6. Toss through the sauce, combining thoroughly to coat all vegetables.
  7. To cook the rice - in a medium saucepan with a tight-fitting lid, combine rice with 1 cup water and bring to a boil. Stir once, cover, and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 20 minutes. (Do not lift the lid or stir). Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve.
