Veggie Stir Fry

  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbsp ginger, minced
  • 1 large zucchini, cut in quarters lengthwise and sliced
  • 1 small cabbage, chopped
  • 2 cups snow or snap peas, cut into bit size pieces
  • 1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 3 Tbsp reduced sodium tamari (or soy sauce), to taste

The Rest

  • 8 oz rice noodles, cooked according to package instructions and rinsed with cold water when done
  • handful of cilantro, chopped
  • handful of fresh mint, chopped
  • half a cucumber, chopped
  • large leaf lettuce
  • dipping sauce of your choice, I used THIS

In a large saute pan, saute garlic in olive oil, water or broth for a couple of minutes.  Add ginger and saute a minute more.  Add remaining ingredients in stir fry section.  Cover, opening to stir occasionally, until everything is done to your likeness.

Meanwhile, prepare rice noodles and all the fixins – each in their own bowl.  Place all the bowls on the table.  Each person can fill their own lettuce wraps – I started with the rice noodles, topped with the veggie stir fry, followed by cilantro, mint, cucumber, and finally some of the peanut dipping sauce.  FANTASTIC!
