You can make this using chicken, tofu, beef, seafood or black beans. Easy and yummy.

750 grams frozen stir fry veggies (in a pinch) OR your favorite mix of veggies such as:
1 broccoli, cut in bite size pieces
2 red/yellow/orange peppers, cut in strips
2 dozen mushrooms, thickly sliced
1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced

Sauce:
1/2 cup orange juice concentrate or juice and zest of 2 oranges
