Veggie Tuesday

For lunch one day a few weeks ago Mr. Mike whipped up theses Teriyaki bowls. He always seems to find just the right spices. He found a little bowl of left over pineapple juice mixed with a little cornstarch to thicken. After he was finished he asked what the surprised ingredient was. I guessed it right a way sweet potato. The veggies were perfect with just a little crunch. What a colorful and happening lunch.
Mike's Teriyaki Bowls

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 clove of garlic finely chopped
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
1/4 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup Kikkoman's Teriyaki sauce
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup of broccoli
1 cup of cauliflower
1 sweet potato
1 cup asparagus cut into 2 in pieces
1 cup carrots diced and whole

Cook sweet potato in microwave bag for two minutes. In small mixing bowl mix cornstarch, pineapple juice, and Teriyaki sauce let set while cooking vegetables. Heat oil in large skillet or wok add garlic, and red pepper flakes. Thinly slice and peel sweet potato. Add all of the vegetable to oil and cook for ten minutes on medium heat. Cover mixture with sauce and cook an additional five minutes. Garnish with sesame seeds.
