Stir Fried Veggies Side Dish and Fruit Salad
  1. Steam carrots in micro. (I put carrots with a tablespoon or two of broth in glass measure and cover with plastic wrap. Then I steam for three to six minutes, depending on how many carrots I have and how done I want them before I add them to the stir fry pan.)
  2. Heat small amount of broth in skillet while chopping onions, garlic, and peppers.
  3. Stir fry aromatics (the three in #2) while you pull out the carrots.
  4. Clean and chop brocolli and start steaming it in the micro in the same way as the carrots.
  5. Slice zuchinni in thin rounds.
  6. Add carrots, zuchinni, pea pods, garlic, Mrs. Dash, soy sauce, oyster sauce, and more broth, as needed and turn fire on medium high. Stir frequently as they cook.
  7. When stir fry has just a minute or two left of cooking time, fold in the brocolli. (My guys do not like mushy brocolli, so I fold it in at the end.)
  8. Continue to add more broth as needed while cooking.
*Note: I seldom use oil to make a stir fry. If I do, it is just a little olive oil or coconut oil. I usually use broth to "fry" my stir fries

+I am a big pre-cooker. And I precook in the microwave, despite what some say about the microwave. It steams brocolli perfectly, and it is fast. So...
