  • Recipe was from: Ginger Veggie Stir-Fry By: veggigoddess
    "I just whipped this up one day when I felt like a stir-fry but did not have all the ingredients called for in some of the stir-fry recipes on this site. I used certain veggies I had on hand, but any seasonal veggies may be used. It has a mild ginger flavor that can be enhanced according to taste, and is filling yet light on the tummy! Tofu may be added. Serve over a bed of steamed jasmine rice." @

  • I like this one: 2 cups pineapple juice, 2 tbsp corn starch, 1 tbsp soy sauce, 1/4 tsp ground ginger, 3 cloves garlic, minced. Combine that all in a bowl and whisk to break up any cornstarch lumps. In a skillet, heat 2 tbsp canola oil. Add in 2 cups broccoli, 1 cup carrots, 1 cup snow peas, 1 cup bell pepper strips (any color you want). Stir fry til the broccoli is soft. All the other things should be done by then too. Pour in the pineapple sauce and let simmer to thicken. Serve over Jasmine rice. Yummy. You can also add 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes if your family likes a little spicy.

  • Heat a pot of salted water & boil the noodles till tender. Rinse, drain & keep warm on a serving dish. Heat oil in a wok & stir fry onion, broccoli, mushrooms, water chestnuts & bamboo shoots for 2 minutes. Add bean sprouts & fry for 1 minute. Place on dish with noodles. Keep warm. Add a little more oil & fry ginger & garlic for 1 minute. Stir in salt, sugar, soy sauce, sherry & sesame oil. Add bean curd. Fry gently till bean curd begins to brown. Mix together with the noodles & vegetables. Keep warm. Add a little more oil to the wok & fry the sesame seeds, nuts, green onion & pepper till the nuts begin to brown. Use a garnish for the rest of the meal
