i'm so excited to post this. meet my new favorite dinner: ginger lime stir fry. totally jamie oliver inspired. you've got to try this. i love, love it. it tastes like it's straight from your favorite mongolian grill place. and it makes your lips tingle.

how to.

1. chop two chicken breasts into cubes and cook in olive oil in a large skillet, adding salt and pepper as you go.
2. while the meat is cooking, cook some whole wheat pasta and set it aside.
3. chop asparagus, cauliflower, carrots, and broccoli (or whatever you like) and throw them in with the meat. add more s & p. let simmer and soften for a few minutes.
4. once the chicken is done and veggies are soft and have nice color, add the cooked pasta. then pour ginger lime sauce over all. mix it up and let it mingle just a minute more. serve hot.
note: leave out the meat and i wouldn't even know it. really.

ginger lime sauce (mm. mmm.)

4 T. soy sauce
2 T. honey
2 T. ginger, fresh or ground
2 large cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. white vinegar
1 tsp. lime juice
1/4 tsp. black pepper
pinch red pepper flakes
1 to 2 tsp. cornstarch for desired thickness
2 T. water

combine all ingredients in a glass bowl. cover and let sit in the fridge until ready to use. let sit overnight, if you can. will keep in fridge for 2 weeks.

My kids made this tonight! Awesome. We will be making again, sometime. Yellow bell pepper, yellow squash, pineapple, peas, and frozen corn, Was a big hit with 2 adults and 20yo and 18yo daughters. They whipped it up in no time, too.
