    Prep:25min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. In a large bowl, blend cornflour, garlic, 1/2 of the ginger and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil until cornflour is dissolved. Mix in broccoli, mangetout, carrots and green beans, tossing to lightly coat.
    2. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large frying pan or wok over medium heat. Cook vegetables in oil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent burning. Stir in soy sauce and water. Mix in onion, salt and remaining ginger. Cook until vegetables are tender but still crisp.

    I skipped the green beans and onions, but added Chinese mushrooms, red bell pepper and tofu to this dish. I made the stir fry by first sauteing the ginger and garlic, then adding all of the vegetables, followed by the tofu. Next, I added the soy sauce and then the cornstarch in water to make the stir fry sauce. Tossing the vegetables in an oil-cornstarch mix may have caused the "gummy texture" problems reported by other viewers. This is a good basic stir fry recipe. If you find it bland, you can increase the amount of ginger and garlic, as well as add a bit of chili paste or crushed red pepper flakes to give it a bit more kick.  -  13 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Being asian and having grown up with authentic asian stir-fry's, I consider this dish a good imitation. I added several additional ingredients, such as fish sauce. Overall, good.  -  27 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
