Stir Fry Dinner

4 servings

1 yellow onion, diced
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 packages of frozen stir fry vegetables
6 oz vegetable crumbles
1 clove garlic, minced
3 tablespoons of ginger paste
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoon salt–free oriental seasoning
1 1/2 cups low sodium vegetable stock
1/4 cup corn starch
2 cups cooked rice or 1 cup uncooked

Follow directions on the package to make rice. In a heavy non-stick fry pan, heat on high heat and add oil, onions, frozen vegetables and cook for 5 minutes. Add garlic, ginger paste, rice vinegar and oriental seasoning and cook for 1 more minute. Add vegetable crumbles and stock and bring to a boil. Dissolve corn starch in water and make into a liquid paste with no lumps. While vegetable mixture is boiling, whisk in corn starch slurry and it will thicken very quickly. Serve over rice.
