"I created this yummy vegetable medley on the spur of the moment to go along with some grilled pork chops. DH didn't even realize that he was eating Brussels sprouts! Can also be used as a topping for baked potato or served on a bed or rice for a vegetarian meal. Any way its sure to please!"

This was tasty, but it took a lot longer to cook than listed to get the vegetables tender (more like 15-20 minutes rather than 5-8 once I added the water). I added some sliced baby Bella mushrooms and a little diced red onion as well since I had them. Next time I think I'll cover the pan after adding the water, which should get it down to the listed cooking time.

Lovely flavour combination. I subbed lite soy sauce (I didn't realize that I was out of Hoisin) and went a little heavy on the chili sauce. I cleaned and chopped the veggies in the AM when it was a little cooler in the kitchen. Covered and kept them in the fridge all day. The recipe is so easy took just a few minutes to stir fry. We loved it Thanks Acadia for posting  9 Sept 12  Made agaikn and enjoyed just as much 8 October 2012  I like this recipe so much I made it again for Thanksgiving dinner.

What a nice side dish this is, super easy and delicious!! I used hot chili sauce instead of sweet to add a bit of heat and was quite pleased. Will make this again, thanks for posting. Made for the Billboard Recipe Tag game.
