    Mommy Diva's Note:

    A healthy, Spring version of a classic dish that will rev up your "motor" so to speak! Tangerines are reported to be very healthful- helping fight odd infection,reduce bad cholesterol, reduce stress and prevent kidney stones. YUMMY TOO! This recipe was found in FIRST magazine, March 17, 2008 issue. **Note Zaar didn't recognize Szechuan stir-fry sauce, but that is what is called for, spicy Szechuan stir-fry sauce.

      We love stir fry, and this recipe was easy to make, filling and very yummy. I made this for *Diabetic Forum ~ Add More Veggies!* if ZWT4 so I needed to more veggies. So I added the following 2 carrots, a cup of snow peas, and 4 ounces of mushrooms as I prepared this. I had the spicy Szechuan on hand as I bought it special for another recipe last month. I did add a tablespoon of cornstarch to thicken the juice up. I made this for *Zaar World Tour 4* 2008 for the Asian *Diabetic Forum ~ Add More Veggies!* challenge, my team is the Tastebud Tickling Travelers

      Very nice recipe, even though I had to modify it somewhat for ZWT4. First I did not have tangerines so I substituted 2/3 cup of drained mandarin oranges. I squeezed the juice of a lime in with the zest of the lime some of the juice from the oranges and “House of Tsang� Mongolian Fire Oil. I use the Fire Oil a lot with stir frying. I also added a ½ cup of halved Brussels sprouts and a ½ cup of finely sliced carrots to make the 5 veggies needed for the ZWT4 challenge. BTW, I did not have any sesame seeds, but will the next time. I have some left over and will take it for lunch tomorrow. Thanks for a great new recipe.
