“I don’t miss the meat” stir-fry

I can always gauge how satisfying dinner was by how soon afterwards my husband dives into the freezer searching for some long lost ice-cream sandwich.

This stir fry was surprisingly delicious and there were no comments about missing meat or mad hunts for dessert after we were done.  I like to slice my veggies into bigger chunks so that they take on a heartier quality. I’m pretty sure you could clean out your vegetable drawer with this recipe and use whatever you have, served over jasmine rice.


I did slowly add water as needed while the veggies were steaming (with the lid on) and I’ll admit it, I added one tablespoon of brown sugar.

“According to the American Heart Association (AHA), the maximum amount of added sugars you should eat in a day are (7): Men: 150 calories per day (37.5 grams or 9 teaspoons) Women: 100 calories per day (25 grams or 6 teaspoons)”

…  So adding sugar is a big no-no..but hey.. if the hubster heads straight for ice-cream after a tasteless dinner, what’s the point?

I put the lid on and added water as needed to create a bit more sauce.  I also did not add salt; even the low-salt soy is salty enough for me.
