We like to use this base recipe and mix things up. Carrots add a festive crunch. Red peppers give the dish a different distinctive flavor. Onions spice things up a bit.
Picky house? No problem. Make the base recipe with things everyone likes. Then stir fry up small batch's of other ingredients and pile on the veggies. I do this often with onions and mushrooms because I'm the only one who eats them! Funny thing is, every now and then some of "my veggies" will disappear onto another plate. Kids get curious when they see you eating things you enjoy. They start to wonder if they are missing out. And just one of these times, you might even hear "YUM!!! Where has this amazing mushroom been all my life" from a kid! (or a spouse)
