Chinese Luncheon Veggie Stir-Fry
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Using broccoli, red and green bell peppers, zucchini, yellow squash, green onions, snow peas, corn...whatever you have! Almonds add a wonderful taste, texture and nutritional value. If you have some smoked salmon or any other grilled or barbecued left-overs in the refrigerator, slice thinly and add at the end along with the seasonings.
2 tablespoons peanut or grapeseed oil
First prepare vegetables by cutting into evenly shaped chunks or slices. Scrape the corn from the cob. Heat oil in wok or stir-fry pan and add garlic and ginger. Stir fry 30 seconds, and then add the onion and stir fry about 30 seconds. Add remaining vegetables and almonds. Cook and stir several minutes, until done to a crisp tenderness. Add seaonings, soy sauce, and vegetable broth. Simmer 1 minute. Stir in the cornstarch mixture and stir until it thickens and turns transparent. Thinly slice smoked salmon or other fully cooked "summer time" leftovers (a little steak, a burger, sausages, etc.) and stir in to warm through and serve.
