Daniel's Delight

This has become my go to meal. I often eat it alone...but if I want more than veggies I put it  over rice, pasta or tonight a 1/2 a baked potato. I often sprinkle cashews on top and nutritional yeast. Tonight I added  pinto beans from my newly defrosted freezer.  This recipe comes from The Happy Herbivore Cookbook and was originally titled Buddha's Delight. I LOVE this cookbook.

Says it serves 4 - serves 1 or 2 around here as written! 

1 small onion, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 C thinly sliced carrots
1 C finely cut/shredded cabbage
1/2 C Cauliflower florets
1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
2 T soy sauce
2 T raw sugar
2 C cooked rice

Cook onion and garlic over high heat in 1/4 C water (water saute).

When onion is translucent, add remaining veggies.

Reduce heat to medium and cook until veggies are cooked but still crisp - 10 - 15 min.

Mix soy sauce and sugar together, pour over veggies, stir to coat.

Cook another 5 min and serve over rice, pasta, potato or plain.

As you can tell - I  use the veggies I have on hand...Mushrooms, broccoli, snap peas...yummy. Double the sauce if you have way more veggies than listed above.
