Easy Meals - Ginger Szechuan Spiced Cabbage Stir-fry

Fresh Veggies are everywhere now, yet I bought a bag of pre-shredded slaw.  The convenience bag is so easy to use and just the right size needed.

Today there wasn’t anything in the fridge for left-overs, so I had to think of something to cook besides an omelet or make a smoothie.

There are usually frozen vegetables in the freezer and canned beans and tomatoes in the pantry.  But sometimes, food gets boring.

So…… I served this up with some baked salmon.

Since there is no meat in this dish, it is great for potluck or picnics.   It tastes just fine at room temperature.
Spicy suits my palate just fine as you may notice the ginger and the Szechuan sauce add quite a bit of ginger! 

I was a bit concerned about the garlic and cabbage stinking up the house, but the ginger tempered it quite a bit! Even with a vented stove, some scents manage to escape.

Normally, I would have used red peppers, but Ii only had green ones, so used what I had..
