       3 tb Low-sodium soy sauce
       2 tb Water
       2 tb Rice vinegar
       1 tb Oyster sauce
       1 tb Ketchup

       2 tb Oil
 
 MMMMM-------------------------RICE DISH------------------------------
       1 ea Small yellow  onion
   1 1/2 c  Celery, cut on the diagonal
       1 c  Carrots, cut on the diagonal
       1 c  Cooked, cubed meat, any
     1/2 c  Red or green pepper, diced
       3 c  Cooked, cooled rice
       1 c  Sugar snap peas or snow peas
  
   * Rice should be preferably a day old. Remove stems from peas. Meat
   can be
     lean chicken, turkey or pork.
     Combine all the ingredients for the sauce in a 2-cup mixing bowl.
   Stir
     vigorously with a fork until the sugar has dissolved. Place near the
     stove where it will be handy.
     Assemble the remaining ingredients near the stove in individual
   piles or
     dishes. Precook the carrots 1 minute in a microwave oven on high
   (100
     percent) power. The carrots also may be blanched in boiling water 2
     minutes to tenderize them.
     Place the oil in a wok or large skillet, Set over high heat and
   allow oil
     to become quite hot.  Add the onions first, stirring occasionally
   until
     they begin to caramelize and turn brown around the edges. Add the
   celery
     and stir 2 minutes longer. Add the carrots, meat and bell pepper
   and cook
     2 minutes longer, stirring constantly.
     Add the rice all at once, stirring quickly to mix all ingredients.
   (Some
     rice may begin to stick to the sides of the wok or skillet, but
   continue
     stirring.) Add the peas and pour in sauce mixture. Stir until
   mixture is
     evenly colored with the sauce. Remove from heat and serve
   immediately.
     Test kitchen notes: The choice of ingredients is up to the cook. If
     desired, substitute bulb fennel or green onions for celery; peeled,
     deveined and cooked shrimp or lump crab meat for the meat; or
   English
     peas for snow peas. Remember to use low-fat ingredients to keep the
