  • Cook's Tips:
  • - Four cups assorted fresh vegetables, such as sugar snap peas, broccoli florets, bell pepper strips and shredded carrots may be substituted for 1 package vegetable stir-fry blend.
  • - Your favorite stir-fry sauce flavor may be substituted for the sesame-ginger flavor.
  • - An electric skillet may be substituted for large nonstick skillet. Set skillet to 375 degrees for cooking. If using a non-coated electric skillet, add additional 1-tablespoon water when cooking vegetables to prevent over browning.
