This Chinese style skinny shrimp and vegetables dish is ready in under half an hour and is packed with flavor!
This meal has great flavor without all the calories. Thank you, garlic and spring onions. Hoisin sauce adds some sweetness, and soy sauce adds that salty taste we love. Easy and delicious!
If you want it spicy, add some chili paste.
A teaspoon or so of freshly grated ginger would also work well here too. I forgot to buy ginger, so it’s not in this particular recipe. It still tasted good. You don’t need to limit yourself to my veggie suggestions. If you need to use up vegetables, feel free to chuck them in here.
