1 tablespoon canola oil
1/2 cup bean sprouts
1/2 cup green bell pepper
1/2 cup onion
1/2 cup raw mushroom pieces
1 teaspoon ginger root
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/3 cup low-sodium chicken broth
3 tablespoons sherry wine
1 teaspoon cornstarch
4 ounces shrimp, cooked
1 cup hot cooked white rice
- Chop bell pepper, onion and mushroom pieces. Mince ginger root.
- Heat oil in a large nonstick frying pan or wok. Saute the bean sprouts, bell peppers, onions, mushrooms and ginger root. Stir in the garlic powder.
- Mix the sesame oil, soy sauce, red pepper flakes, sherry, chicken broth and cornstarch together in a large jar with a tight lid. Shake mixture until the cornstarch is dissolved.
- Add this mixture to the vegetables in the frying pan. Add the shrimp. Cook stirring constantly until the mixture thickens slightly and the shrimp are heated through.

- To make the assembly of the meal easy and fast, get all the ingredients ready before you start cooking.
- Frozen chopped onion and green pepper can be used in place of fresh vegetables.
- Canned mushrooms are not a good choice due to high sodium content.
- Adjust the red pepper flakes to your own tolerance for heat.
- Do not overcook the shrimp, as it will be dry and tasteless.
