Fake-out Take-out with Garlic Ginger Veggie Stir Fry!

Awesome. I was SO pleased with how this turned out. It smelled kinda funky while it was cooking, the vinegar I think, so I was a little scared for the result. But, no need to worry, this was GREAT! Alex even said it was the best of my recipe endeavors thus far.

Fake-Out Take-Out. I knew I had wanted to make this as soon as I saw it pop up on my google reader, and tonight I was craving something sweet and sour and stir fry, and I had finally bought the corn starch, so this hit the spot!

I followed the recipe for the chicken exactly except for I seasoned my chicken with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper.

Garlic Ginger Veggie Str Fry! I was proud that this turned out so well, it was an experiment. I would make this again just on its own with some rice.

A few stalks of celery, chopped.
A bunch of carrots, chopped.
One smallish yellow onion
Two Cloves of Garlic, finely chopped
about a 1 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
a bit of water
a few splashes of soy sauce.

I fried up the garlic and ginger in some canola oil in the wok until nicely fragrant. Then added the rest of the veggies. Then I added a few splashes of soy sauce and a bit of water to get things steamy. I stir fried everything up, then put on the cover and let it steam, stirring occasionally.

The ginger flavor in this was great!

Overall this meal was better then take-out and much healthier and super flavorful! I will definitely be making this again!
