  9. When all veggies are in the skillet (except for bean spouts and shrimp), turn the heat on high only until the pan starts to sizzle. Stir constantly so the oil is coating all. You will see the veggies start to cook done.

  11. When they start to look like they are cooking, pour the well mixed sauce over the veggies, and stir well. If it looks like it could use a little more sauce, just add a 1/2 cup of water.
  12. When the sauce starts boiling turn it down to simmer and add the mixed cornstarch and water and stir rapidly, and remove from the heat.
  13. Add the shrimp, and stir well. Place the bean sprouts over the top of the mixture and cover. They will steam and stay a bit crisp.

My son loves shrimp, so when he had to pick a meal to make for a Boy Scouts badge, this is the recipe he selected. It has since become a family favorite. It's one of the few healthy meals the kids frequently request.

Serve this over noodles or steamed rice. If you omit the shrimp, these vegetables can be a delicious, colourful base for grilled chicken or fish.
