This was a winner in our house last night! I used about 3 times the amount of ginger it calls for and also used 2 cloves garlic with the sautéed veggies.

Used soy sauce instead of liquid aminos and white rice. Love the gingery flavors of this dish. Perfect for lunch throughout the week! Not heavy so doesn't leave me feeling lethargic for the rest of the day like some meat and rice bowls do. I'm adding this to my weekly rotation!
