MY own Chinese Takeout Lunch

Hey dolls so I had a few people stop by after my volunteer date over the weekend and I wanted to put something together quickly. I had some great veggies in the fridge I didn't want to go to waste plus I didn't want to be in the kitchen to long I'd rather be eating and yapping so because I love Chinese takeout and that is my go to when I have company sometimes I decided to make my own.

Thursday's Treat... Broccoli, Carrots & Mushrooms served with Noodles!!!

-baby carrots 
-garlic cloves
-brown sugar
-soy sauce
-sea salt
-Olive oil

What I loved the most about this dish was most of it was done in one pot/wok lol.
Ok so I took 3 handfuls of medium size broccoli florets, 6 medium mushrooms and 5 baby carrots rinsed and cut to manageable pieces. I cut 4 garlic cloves very thinly sliced and added it to my Wok along with 3 tbsps of water on medium heat and put in my veggies. As it cooked down I then added 3 tbsps of brown sugar, less than 1/3 cup of soy sauce, 1 tsp of sea salt, 1 1/2 tbsp of Olive oil and mixed it all together. I cooked my noodles as I would normally cook any pasta and when ready added to my wok mixed very well...done!

It was delish, everyone was very happy even the ones who didn't care for veggies too much. Easy cleanup and healthy. I had plenty of time to chat away and read my Shape magazine. Enjoy!

Always stress free xo
