Sauté onions and carrots with oil in a wok or large pot until onion is tender. • Add mushrooms, broccoli and nuts and stir for one or two minutes.
Add the water, cover with a lid, and simmer for a few minutes until broccoli is bright green. Don’t overcook. • Add soy sauce, salt and pepper, and cornstarch dissolved in cold water (to thicken the sauce).
Serve with brown rice or whole-grain noodles.
Variations: Be creative! Experiment with different combinations of fresh veggies, tofu, seeds or nuts. For more flavour, try adding ginger, garlic, or miso.
