Feel free to tinker with the vegetables according to the season and your own tastes; snow peas, asparagus, cabbage, and red peppers are a few possibilities. As a side dish this could accompany teriyaki chicken; for a main dish, add some protein (leftover meat, cooked shrimp, small cubes of fried tofu, or scrambled eggs cut into shreds). If you prefer a spicier dish, throw in a pinch of red pepper flakes while cooking the onion mixture, or serve with chile sauce on the side.
When I make rice, I usually cook a ratio of half long-grain white rice with half long-grain brown rice in the rice cooker. You can use any kind of rice for this recipe as long as it's not warm or hot: leftover from take-out, white, or brown. Be sure to read Carrie Floyd's column on eating your veggies (or not).
