Dinner recipes: Citrus Veggie Stir-Fry

Crunchy cashews and a citrus-seasoned sauce will stir your appetite for this colorful, no-cholesterol vegetable medley. My husband requests this meatless entree often, so it’s on the menu at least once a month.


1 tablespoon cornstarch

1 cup orange juice

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 teaspoon grated orange peel

½ teaspoon ground ginger

⅛ teaspoon hot pepper sauce

1 cup sliced carrots

1 cup julienned sweet red pepper

1 cup julienned green pepper

1 tablespoon canola oil

1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms

2 cups fresh or frozen snow peas

½ cup sliced green onions

⅓ cup salted cashews

4 cups hot cooked rice


1. In a bowl, combine the first seven ingredients and blend; set aside.

2. In a large skillet or wok, stir-fry carrots and peppers in oil for 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and snow peas; stir-fry for 6 minutes. Add green onions; stir-fry for 3 minutes or until the vegetables are crisp-tender.

3. Stir orange juice mixture and add to pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in cashews.

4. Serve with rice.
