This recipe happened because I was dieting and needed something I could eat a LOT of to fill me up without killing me with fat & calories. You can obviously use any veg that appeals to you; you can even add chicken breast, shrimp or pork loin. Serve with brown rice or alone. It's all good!

Ingredients

1 small
head broccoli, cut into small florest
1 c
baby carrots, cut into quarters lengthwise
1 c
mushrooms, sliced, whatever kind you like
1 c
pea pods, whole or cut in 1/2
1/2
medium zucchini, cut in 1/2 lengthwise, then sliced into 1/2 moons
1/2 can(s)
baby corn, drained
1 small
can sliced water chestnuts
3
green onions, sliced
2 clove
fresh garlic, finely minced
1 tsp
fresh ginger, finely minced
1 Tbsp
olive oil
2 Tbsp
soy sauce, low sodium
1 Tbsp
hoisin sauce
1 Tbsp
rice vinegar
1 tsp
toasted sesame oil, seriously - this stuff is strong
1/2 - 1 tsp
sugar or sweetener (splenda), more or less to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Use whatever veggies & meat combo you like. I like broccoli, carrots, pea pods, water chestnuts, green onions and mushrooms. If I use meat I use rotisserie chicken or frozen cooked shrimp.
2
Sauté veggies that take longest (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots) over med-high heat in about 1T. Olive oil for about 2 minutes. Add about ¼ c. Cold water and cover pan to partially steam the veggies for about 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
3
Add next layer of veg (mushrooms, zucchini, water chestnuts) and stir frequently while sautéing for another 2 or 3 minutes. I would add the garlic & ginger at this point (1 T. Of each, finely chopped).
4
Finally, add veg that take the least amount of time to cook (green onions, baby corn, pea pods, any veg that is already cooked & just needs to heat through).
5
If adding meat, add it now (rotisserie chicken, pre-cooked shrimp (thawed)). Stir and cook to heat through.
Add the soy sauce, hoisin, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and sugar/sweetener. Stir to combine and coat veggies/meat. Serve over brown rice or as is.
