stirring to coat the vegetables with the sauce. Serve the stir-fry vegetables sprinkled with cilantro or parsley. Serve alone or over cooked rice or noodles.
Low-Carb Noodle Option: Shirataki noodles are a low- carb alternative to rice and pasta. To prepare: Rinse the noodles well and drain. Heat a large sauté pan. “Dry fry” (no oil) the noodles while moving them about with tongs or large fork for about 3 minutes to dry off excess water. Serve hot with stir-fried vegetables.
