We love this Asian-style take-out dish made easy (and healthier!) right at home. It’s only 9 ingredients, packed with nutrients, and pleasantly filling & satisfying… especially served over a fluffy bed of rice or quinoa. I find Asian take-out dishes are often weighed down by tons of oil, so I opted for an oil-free stir-fry method for this recipe, simply by subbing in a little vegetable broth or water to saute. Light and healthy, yet every bit delicious!
Portobellos are a perfect meat substitute for those looking to swap in the plants. They’re tender and juicy with a deliciously rich texture. I love how stir-fries are totally customizable with your own favorite veggies or whatever’s in season. (Asparagus is amazing in this too!) We especially love broccoli because the savory garlic sauce finds its way into all the tiny crevices and it’s like eating a delicious broccoli flavor bomb (yum!)
