Serves 2

What You'll Need:

1 cup crimini mushrooms
2 bell peppers (I used one red, one green)
2 scallions, chopped (optional)
1 cup broccoli florets
1 handful green beans
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2-inch piece of fresh ginger
1 tablespoon chili paste
2 tablespoons sugar (I used coconut palm sugar) (optional) 
4 tablespoons soy sauce

What to Do:

  1. Prep all of your veggies: Finely dice the ginger, wash and halve the mushrooms, stem and seed the bell peppers, and trim the green beans and chop into thirds. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the chili paste, sugar, and soy sauce. Set aside.
  3. Into a wok over medium-high heat, heat the oil. Add ginger and let cook for one minute.
  4. Add the mushrooms, bell pepper, scallions, broccoli, and green beans. Put a lid on the wok and let cook for 4 to 5 minutes before tossing.
  5. Continue to cook and toss without a lid for another 2 minutes.
  6. Add the liquid mixture and toss again. Cook for another 3 minutes until the liquid has cooked off and the vegetables are tender.
  7. Serve and enjoy!
