Soy Spiced Spring Vegetables

A spring green fix, the vegebox is full of asparagus , purple sprouting broccoli and spring green cabbage. I am very happy,  early this week I stir fried asparagus with soy sauce , chilli and garlic, it was so delicious I decided to make in Friday night dinner with more vegetables.

You could definitely add chicken or tofu to this dish but I just wanted a pure hit of crunchy green vegetables served with some brown rice to soak up the sauce. The balance of salty , sweet and sour here is perfect, I found myself licking the bowl and the chopsticks –  always a great sign.
