This is a very simple recipe but one that adds a nice flair to a typical side dish of vegetables. I have tried this using chicken broth instead of beef but it doesn't taste quite the same.

Vegetables: Any kind works for this recipe; but I prefer broccoli, zucchini (yellow), carrots and mushrooms for this, which makes a colorful, tasty side dish.

- prepare your fying pan: 1 Tbsp. of olive oil, plus either 1 heaping teaspoon of pureéd ginger; or 2 cloves of garlic, minced. Keep on very low heat to allow the oil to absorb the flavor of the garlic/ginger as you prepare your vegetables.
- Bring half a pot of water to a boil; add 1 teaspoon of beef broth crystals.
- Blanch your vegetables; pour into collander to drain excess water. (Blanching is cooking the vegetables just long enough to turn them bright green)
- Turn the heat up on your frying pan, and once it's sizzling, give the vegetables a quick toss - not long enough to cook the vegetables too much further, but enough to give them the extra flavor.
