Cook rice
  • Add 1 cup (2 cups) water and broth concentrate to a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Meanwhile, using a strainer, rinse rice until water runs clear.
  • Add rice to the boiling water, then reduce heat to medium-low.
  • Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. (NOTE: Reduce heat to low if water is boiling over.)
  • Remove from heat. Set aside, still covered.

Roast meatballs
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Add plant-based ground protein, panko, 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) Moo Shu Spice Blend and 1/4 tsp (1/2 tsp) salt to a large bowl. (TIP: If you prefer a more tender meatball, add an egg to mixture!) 
  • Season with pepper, then combine. 
  • Roll mixture into 8 equal-sized meatballs (16 meatballs for 4 ppl).
  • Arrange on the prepared baking sheet. 
  • Roast in the top of the oven, turning halfway, until cooked through, 12-14 min.**
  • Meanwhile, trim and halve snow peas.
  • Core, then cut pepper into 1/2-inch pieces.
  • Thinly slice green onion.
  • Peel, then mince or grate garlic.
Cook veggies
  • Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.
  • When the pan is hot, add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil, then snow peas and peppers.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally, until veggies are tender-crisp, 3-4 min. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Transfer veggies to a plate, then cover to keep warm.
Make sauce
  • Add sweet chili sauce, garlic and 1/4 cup (1/2 cup) water to the same pan. 
  • Bring sauce to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low. 
  • Add meatballs and sesame oil. 
  • Cook, stirring often, until sauce thickens slightly and meatballs are coated, 1 min.

Finish and serve
  • Fluff rice with a fork and stir in green onions and 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter.
  • Divide rice between bowls. Top with veggies and meatballs.
  • Spoon any remaining sauce over meatballs.
  • Sprinkle with cashews.
Modularity step (under step 2)

If you've opted to get plant-based ground protein, prepare, cook and plate it the same way the recipe instructs you to prepare, cook, and plate the pork.**


If you've received broccoli, cut into bite-sized pieces. Continue to follow the recipe as instructed, subbing broccoli in for the swapped veg. Then, increase pan-fry cook time to 5-6 min to ensure a tender-crisp bite.
