Yummy Veggie Stir-fry!
Do you need some veggies? Maybe even something green? Then today is your lucky day! (Sorry, the words "green" and "lucky" are as close as you'll get to a St. Patrick's Day mention from me.) Stir-fry Is Easy: 2 large carrots, sliced 3 ribs celery, chopped 1 onion, diced 1 head broccoli, chopped 3 cloves garlic, minced 1 bell pepper, cut into small strips 1/2 block extra firm tofu, cubed 1/2 c. snap peas, strings removed bean sprouts- a few handfuls cooked brown rice, 3/4 cup to 1 cup/person Sauce: 1/2 c. orange juice 1 Tbsp. soy sauce 1/2 tsp. ground ginger 1 tsp. sesame oil Sesame seeds to garnish In a large pan, spray some cooking spray. Turn the heat onto medium high, then add the onions, garlic, celery, and peppers. Stir around. Add the broccoli, about 1/4 cup of water and the carrots, then let cook for 10 minutes or so. When the carrots are slightly softened, add the tofu and the peas. Cover with the sauce, and cook for 5 more minutes. Right before serving, add the bean sprouts, and stir to warm them. Serve with more sesame seeds.
