Ingredients for Kung Pow Chicken and veggies

Cooking Instructions:

Step 1.

Start by chopping your carrots, zucchini, and cabbage. I used a wok to cook everything but you can use your largest skillet as well. Drizzle wok with fair amount of olive oil, heat, and start by adding the carrots. Mix carrots and when you see them starting to fry up or brown add zucchini, repeat and add cabbage, then nuts. Once everything is cooked and browning, set veggie and nut mixture aside.
