Recipe by Sharon123
A great vegetarian recipe from the Micheff's sisters cookbook, Cooking for Two. I used vegetarian chicken strips. I also doubled all the veggies and rice and still had plenty of sauce.You will love the crunchy goodness of nuts with this stir fry. If you are pressed for time, use your favorite teriyaki sauce. Be sure to cut up the vegs. about the same size. Make sure your skillet is hot and use oil with a high smoke point. When the oil is hot enough a drop of water will pop into steam on contact.
- 1 tablespoon canola oil (I use olive oil)
- 1 clolve garlic, crushed
- 1⁄2 cup teriyaki sauce (recipe below)
