Boil rice in lightly salted water, until soft. Drain and set aside. Heat half the oil in a wok and fry vegetarian strips for 6 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside. Heat the rest of the oil and fry the onions until transparent. Add carrots, courgettes, mushrooms and green pepper. Add peas; stir fry for about 10 minutes. Add a little hot water to prevent vegetables sticking to pan. Simmer until vegetables are soft and all liquid is reduced. Add chunky strips and rice and carefully turn over to mix. Heat through gently and serve with Soy sauce.
