Veggie ginger garlic stir fry

This tasty veggie stir fry is a great base for the protein of your choice from chicken to fish or any leftover protein from the meal plan. For vegetarians add 1 cup firm tofu or 1 cup defrosted, shelled edamame.  If you’re on the yellow phase, add ½ cup cooked brown rice.

Ingredients Serves 1

Stir Fry Sauce

1 tablespoon Thai chili sauce (sambal olek) or sriracha
1 tablespoon lime juice
2 teaspoons lite soy sauce or gluten-free tamari

Vegetable Base

2 cups broccoli florets, (about ½ head)
6 asparagus spears (about ½ pound), chopped
1 yellow, red, or orange bell pepper, seeded, thinly sliced
1 cup sliced mushrooms, such as white button or shiitake
1 cup thinly sliced bok choy
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon minced ginger

Prepare the sauce. Place the chili sauce, lime juice, and soy sauce or tamari in a small bowl. Add one tablespoon of water and whisk well to combine. Coat a large skillet or wok over with the cooking spray. Place over medium-high heat.

Add the broccoli, asparagus, bell pepper, mushrooms, bok choy, garlic and ginger.  Cook 5 to 6 minutes until the vegetables are tender. Turn the heat off and add the reserved sauce.  Toss well to coat and serve immediately with the protein of your choice.
