Ginger Plum Stir-Fry Recipe

"Here's a great way to get in your vegetables," promises Evelyn Joan Brewer of Bluffton, Indiana. "I lightened up the original recipe by using soy crumbles instead of sausage. I serve it over cooked rice."
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup plum sauce
  • 1 small sweet red pepper, cut into chunks
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 package (14 ounces) coleslaw mix
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1 package (12 ounces) frozen vegetarian meat crumbles

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and ginger. Stir in the broth until smooth. Stir in the soy sauce and plum sauce until blended; set aside.
  • 2. In a large nonstick skillet or wok coated with cooking spray, stir-fry red pepper and garlic in oil for 2 minutes. Add mushrooms; stir-fry 2 minutes longer. Add coleslaw mix and onions; stir-fry for 2 minutes.
  • 3. Add vegetarian meat crumbles. Stir broth mixture; gradually stir into skillet. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened and crumbles are heated through. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: Vegetarian meat crumbles are a nutritious protein source made from soy. Look for them in the natural foods freezer section.
