I opened the fridge, looked at the leeks in the garden and threw this stir fry together. It went over well so I thought I would post it. The colored sweet peppers are just to add a bit of color but they do add flavor so include them even if you only use green. Bragg that is mentioned as an option to Soy sauce is low sodium Soy sauce and can be purchased in Health food stores and some grocery stores

What a delicious way to use up produce odds and ends in the refrigerator! THIS IS HOT AND SPICY! We loved it, and DH said the heat is just perfect, but I think I'll cut back the sambal oelek next time, and let him add more at the table. I didn't have vodka on hand, and used a little sake instead. Worked perfectly. Thanks for creating and sharing this great recipe.
