5 Tbsp. vegan margarine
2 onions chopped
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. grated or minced fresh ginger root
4 cups diced mixed veg. (potatoes, peas, carrots, peppers, green beans, zucchini, whatever)

Melt the margarine, cook the onions in it, add the cinnamon and the ginger, stir then add all the other vegetables, rice and turmeric.

Cook this over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.

Add the water and the salt and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down very low, cover the pot and cook for 20-25 minutes, til all the water is absorbed.
