This tasty combination goes from pan to table in no time. Because stir-frying is so fast, have all ingredients measured out and ready before you start cooking. Meal Plan: Prepare a 6-serving portion of quick-cooking brown rice to mop up the delicious sauce. A salad of sliced cucumber and watercress would add a refreshing note to the meal.

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbs. rice vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbs. cornstarch or arrowroot
  • 2 Tbs. honey or brown rice syrup
  • 2 Tbs. soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 Tbs. vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch squares
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch squares

Preparation

Make sauce: In small bowl, stir together all ingredients until cornstarch has dissolved. Set aside.

In wok or large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, 8 minutes.

Add bell peppers and asparagus, increase heat to medium-high and stir-fry 5 minutes. Add tomatoes (with liquid) and pineapple chunks and stir-fry 5 minutes more.
