Rice goes well with stir-fries. One-third cup (75 mL) of cooked rice counts as a Starch Exchange or Carbohydrate Choice. For added flavor, fiber and vitamins, use brown rice. You can cook rice without adding salt; if you do add it, use no more than ¼ tsp (1 mL) per cup (250 mL) of dry rice. This will add about 75 mg of sodium per 1/3-cup (75 mL) serving.
French-cut green beans or chopped broccoli can be substituted for the snow peas.
