Super Stir Fry

Choose 5 vegetables (1/2 cup of each)

  • Onion
  • Broccoli
  • Celery
  • Carrots
  • Peppers
  • Mushrooms
  • Squash
  • Zucchini
  • Cauliflower

Choose 1 sauce (about ¼ cup)

  • Lite/Low-Sodium Soy Sauce
  • Teriyaki Marinade
  • Bottled Stir Fry Sauce

Choose 1 starch (1 cup cooked per person)
Cook according to package directions

  • White rice
  • Brown rice
  • Rice noodles
  • Whole wheat spaghetti noodles

Directions:

  1. Wash and chop selected vegetables into small evenly sized pieces. You may cut them into circles, strips, or cubes as desired. A variety of shapes will make the stir fry more pleasing to the eye.
  2. Heat a small amount (1 tablespoon or less) of vegetable oil over high heat in a 10-inch frying pan, electric skillet, or wok.
  3. Keeping the heat high, add vegetables to the pan in order of firmness—harder foods first and ending with the softest foods.
  4. Toss vegetables to keep from sticking until they are cooked. When stir frying, vegetables should still be crisp and retain their bright color.
  5. Add sauce to taste (about ¼ cup). Stir Fry until all vegetables are thoroughly coated.
  6. Serve with starch of choice.
