Extra Seasoning – Optional
- 1 tsp Asian sesame oil

- Add the garlic and vegetables and stir fry for 3-5 minutes until just starting to soften.
- Add soy sauce mixture to the pan. Cover and cook for one minute until reduced slightly.
- Add the optional sesame oil and red pepper flakes. Then add the cornstarch-water mixture.
