Spicy Tuna Stir Fry!

Spicy Tuna Stir-FryYup, once again I am adding to my list of stir frys! But I love them, they are just so nice  and simple to throw together for dinner and are very filling! I hope you guys enjoy this one. It’s a bit of a twist on my original Tasty Traditional Stir Fry.*If you notice my messy dish in the picture, this is a result of me forgetting to add the tuna and having to add the entire stir fry back to the pan so I could heat it with everything haha.
Ingredients:
Sauce:
1/2 tbsp soya sauce
3 tbsp chicken broth
1/2 tbsp rice vinegar
1 Tsp. splenda
1/2 tsp cornstarch

Stir Fry:
1/2-1 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp minced ginger
1 tsp minced garlic
1 Green onion chopped(green and white part)
1 small celery stalk chopped into pieces
1/2 cup cauliflower chopped
1/4-1/2 a red pepper sliced thinly
handful of almond slivers
1/2 cup broccoli
1/2 can of tuna chopped (I added a little salt/pepper to mine first)
1/2 cup cooked brown rice(1/4 cup uncooked)
1 tsp red pepper flakes(or more if you like it really spicy!)

Directions:
Sauce: Whisk together all ingredients, be sure to mix in the cornstarch well. It may settle on the bottom but don’t worry. Just give it another quick whisk before adding to your Stir-fry and it should be fine! It’s okay if there is a bit stuck in the bowl.

Stir Fry: Make sure all of your vegetables/chicken are chopped in advance and your sauce is ready. Heat a pan over medium heat lightly sprayed with cooking spray. Once hot, add the sesame oil and rotate pan to coat. Add the ginger and garlic, stir and let it bubble for 1 minute. **Keep a cup of water ready incase your pan begins to dry out during your cooking. You can add a little water whenever needed so that your veggies don’t burn!(Since we are cooking with very little oil).** Now add your cauliflower and cook for 2-3 minutes then add celery, red pepper then broccoli as well and cook for another 4 minutes or so. (You can cook longer depending on your preference for vegetable texture). Keep moving the veggies around with a wooden spoon or spatula to coat in oil. Once vegetables begin to look done or are cooked to your liking, add half of the green onion & red pepper flakes. After cooking for another minute or so, throw in your tuna, almonds and brown rice(If you want, you could choose to leave the brown rice out and just add some soya sauce to it, then serve the veggies and everything on top afterwards) Then add your sauce & additional green onion. Stir everything together to coat nicely. Once heated through, take off the heat and serve! You could also add a few extra red pepper flakes if need to! Enjoy!
