Blanch corn in medium saucepan of boiling water 30 seconds. Drain and cool under running water. Trim and halve mushrooms. Cut bell peppers lengthwise into thin strips, then cut strips crosswise in half.

Nice side dish. We really enjoyed how simple this was and how nicely everything tasted together. Thanks, Jackie, for sharing. Made for Culinary Quest 2014.

Very well written recipe and very tasty! I am going to add some broccoli next time because I think the sauce would be great on broccoli. I cut the amount of vegies down to serve two, but made the full amount of sauce because I was serving this over steamed rice.

This is a very straight-forward veggie stir fry and sauce, with clear instructions. I actually used green bell pepper, green chile pepper, radish, corn kernels, and carrots for the veggies (plus scallions and garlic).
