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!

Directions Step-By-Step

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.
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.
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).
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).
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.
