      An absolutely wonderful stir fry. I added some candied ginger and a little more garlic because of personal preference. I omitted the sugar substitute completely. I also used a mix of fresh and frozen vegetables. I served it on brown whole grain rice and my family devoured it. I will definitely make this healthy meal for my family again.

      This was actually my second time making this dish and it's WONDERFUL! I didn't follow the veggies exactly either time... both times I used whatever frozen mixed veggies (broccoli, carrots, peppers, onions, etc) I had on hand, and some frozen edamame. Last night I put in a bunch of fresh mushrooms also, and made a little extra sauce. Served it over rice noodles. So tasty & so easy! Thank you!! :-)

      This is a family favorite that will begin heavy rotation in the months to come. I took a bit of a shortcut and bought a rather large bag of frozen Asian Vegetables (already cut!!). I did have to buy a bell pepper to stick to your wonderful recipe here. Being diabetic, I shaved off a few carbs by NOT using the pineapple juice but draining and replacing the liquid with water. I am sure it would have tasted fantastic had I not done this. Thanks for making me a better cook!!
