Broccoli, Mushroom & Red Peppers in Black Bean Garlic Sauce

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Rita1652

This is a quick, healthy and very flavorful dish that you start by stir frying then end by steaming. The slurry is optional. It gives the sauce a nice thickness. I used Lee Kum Kee black bean garlic sauce and added 3 cloves of garlic so this is for garlic lovers. The vegetables are full of flavor and crisp! You can steam longer if you enjoy softer vegetables.

This was an incredibly fast, easy and simple stir fry. It took about 15 minutes from the minute I turned on the gas burner to when the foot hit my lips. I didn't want to take the time to make rice but I think it would be great to soak up the slurry. I used all fresh veggies which I think made it much more flavorful than using frozen.
