RECIPE: So Good Stir Fry

Craving Chinese food, but not the bloat? You need this simple, healthful, go to dinner dish!  Crunchy, savory and satisfying!
Broccoli, 1 head chopped (I confess, I use pre-chopped, though chopping your own is way tastier)
Onion, sliced
Red pepper, sliced
Mushrooms, 5 sliced
Tofu (drained, cubed and pressed with paper towels to soak up moisture)
(could substitute chicken)
1/4 cup Rice vinegar
1/2 cup Soy sauce (tamari, the real stuff, no wheat added)
2 Tbsp Sesame oil
1 Tbsp Mustard
4 dashes Crushed Red pepper (more or less depending on your spice tolerance)stirfry
add oil, soy sauce, and rice vinegar to large skillet on medium-high heat
add onion and sauté until light brown
add mushrooms, mustard and Tofu and/or chicken and cook an additional 2-3 minutes
add pepper and broccoli and cook another 1-2 minutes, just to warm vegetables but keep them crisp.
Remember the more colorful and crisp your veggies are, the more nutritional value, so don’t over cook!
Enjoy! Be well!
