Savory Brown Sauce
  1. Whisk ingredients except corn starch in a liquid measuring cup or small bowl.

  2. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add onions, garlic, and ginger to pan; stir-fry 1 minute or until just fragrant.
  3. Add bok choy, stir-fry 3 minutes.
  4. Add cauliflower, stir fry another 2 minutes
  5. Add snow peas stir-fry 1 additional minutes.
  6. Add sauce to stir fried vegetables and cook for about 2 minutes until slightly thickened, fragrant and heated through.
  7. Serve over rice with or without chicken. Garnish with pea shoots.
Chicken
  1. Heat a large wok or skillet over high heat.
  2. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add garlic and sauté 1 minute until just fragrant.
  3. Add chicken and sauce to pan, and saute, flipping once, until cooked through, approximately 5 minutes per side.
  4. Serve with vegetables and rice.
