Veggie "Stir Fry"

With the microwave as your stove and a plate as your wok, you can "stir fry" any combination of veggies from the salad bar--this one combines savory mushrooms with crispy bell peppers and crunchy broccoli in a delicious and healthy veggie dish.

Veggie "Stir Fry"
raw broccoli
raw tomato slices
bell pepper, diced
a few red onion rings
raw mushrooms, sliced
drizzle of garlic infused olive oil (1-2 Tbsp)*
light splash of soy sauce (2 tsp)
sat and pepper, to taste
chopped scallions, for garnish
red pepper flakes (optional)

1. Gather veggies on a plate. (I like to put mushrooms and bell pepper on bottom layer, then tomatoes, then broccoli and onions).
2. Drizzle garlic infused olive oil and soy sauce on top.
3. Microwave for 1 min 40 seconds.
4. Sprinkle salt, pepper, scallions, and red pepper flakes (if desired) on top and enjoy!

*this is not always available at the Ratty, but it can easily be substituted with olive oil mixed with 1 tsp garlic powder. Or you can try sesame oil for a stronger flavor.
