Stir fried vegetables

I make this with whatever vegetables I have on hand. Just start with onion & garlic, then add the harder vegetables, like carrots or broccoli stems. Add things like pea pods, green onion tops, or spinach last. You can add cornstarch and some water to your sauce if you want it to have more body, but I don't usually fool with that.

Mix together for sauce:
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tbl rice wine vinegar
2 tbl hoisin sauce
1/2 tsp chili paste


Saute:
1-2 tbl oil
1 onion, sliced
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp grated ginger (optional)

Add & saute your choice of:
carrots
celery
brocolli stems, sliced
cauliflower stems, sliced
red, green, yellow peppers, sliced

Add & saute your choice of:
zucchini, sliced
brocolli florets
cauliflower florets
cabbage, in large dice

Add, cover & steam for 5 minutes:
1/2 cup chicken stock or water

Add sauce mixture, stir, taste & correct seasonings.
