This is a wonderfully healthy meal. I used BRAGGs Liquid Aminos instead of Soy Sauce to reduce sodium, and I added some leftover bok choy, and garlic. Made for ZWT6 - Looney Spoon Phoodies!

This made a nice dinner tonight along with Shaker Potatoes. I liked the addition of mushrooms and celery. I used asparagus stir fry mix. I did add more soy sauce and ended up using some teriyaki sauce too. thanks!
