This is a great basic stir fry recipe. Other than adding some bamboo shoots I had on hand, I followed the recipe exactly. I didn't have any Hoisin sauce so googled a great recipe and made it myself--yum! The beauty of this recipe is all the healthy, delicious stuff you could add to make it like a new dish every time.

This was really good! I made exact to the recipe, but can think of a few ways to make it my own next time! More veggies, dash of garlic chili paste.
