Vegetable Surprise (Stir Fry)

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by pattikay in L.A.

I think this came from the Yan Can Cookbook - an interesting twist on the typical vegetable stir fry.

I halved the recipe, which worked fine. I shredded most of the veggies with a grater, but couldn't figure out how to shred the sprouts so I just chopped them really fine. It's kind of time consuming but tasty, especially for something os low fat!
