This recipe is one of the very first I ever made for this site. I can’t even tell you where the inspiration came from or why I decided to get all sorts of crazy and try an Asian inspired meal, but boy-oh-boy am I so glad I did. It is DELICIOUS.
I chose a simple veggie slaw with a broccoli base for ease and simplicity, but the beauty of this dish is that you really can use any vegetable combination you want. Try mixing things up with some peppers, onions, mushrooms… Anything your little heart desires is a welcome addition (or substitution). When you’ve got a hungry bunch at home ready to dive right in you always appreciate a shortcut which is why I recommend snagging one of those pre-cut/shredded veggie combos.
We mainly serve this as a quick side dish (it comes together in under ten minutes!) but if you want to create a full meal just toss in some cooked chicken, pork, steak, or even tofu! Serve with chopsticks for a fun family experience and watch your kiddos slurp down veggies quicker than you’ve ever seen before.
