"Great for cleaning out the veggie bin of this and that, and of course I made this with what I had on hand. It is very forgiving on what your vegetables are. I have listed some options for other veggies- if you use those, use a little less of the others so the amount of sauce stays nice, or just increase the sauce. Serve this with rice, over pan-fried noodles, over crispy canned chow mein noodles or cook chinese wheat noodles and stir them in (in which case this would now be "lo mein")."

Delicious! After seeing the pictures that Bergy posted I knew I had to make this for dinner last night. I used leftover chicken, added garlic and some siracha and followed the rest of the recipe. Definately a keeper...DH ate every last bite.

I did take some libeerties with this recipe. I cleaned the fridge for the veggies, omitted the chicken and served it with a roasted tilapia filet. The sauce was made as written We loved it Thanks Sue
