Helpful Tips and Tricks

  • Cut the veggies uniformly. To help cook the vegetables at the same rate, make sure to cut the broccoli and mushrooms into same-sized pieces.
  • Prep the soy sauce mixture first. Make the soy seasoning before you start frying, because once you start cooking the veggies, you’ll need to pay attention to them as they fry.
  • Add cashews. Cashews make a wonderful addition to this dish. They add a nice crunch and flavor. If you decide to add them to your stir-fry, add the cashews in Step 3 at the same time as the soy sauce mixture.
