  • 1/2 pound green beans, trimmed and cut in half
  • Cut 1/2 of a green cabbage into large pieces.
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

  1. Prepare the Vegetables: Start by prepping all the vegetables. Cut the broccoli into florets, slice the zucchini into half circles, peel and chop the carrots into 1-inch pieces, trim and halve the green beans, and cut the cabbage into large chunks.
  2. Heat the Oils: In a large skillet or wok, heat the vegetable oil and toasted sesame oil over medium-high heat.

  4. Add the Vegetables: Add the broccoli, zucchini, carrots, green beans, and cabbage to the skillet. Stir-fry the vegetables for about 5-7 minutes, or until they begin to soften but are still crisp-tender.
  5. Incorporate the Broth and Soy Sauce: Pour in the chicken stock and add the soy sauce. Stir everything together, ensuring the vegetables are well-coated.
  6. Simmer: Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook for an additional 5 minutes, or until the vegetables reach your desired level of tenderness.
