Once the veggies are combined, drizzle 2 tbsp sesame oil, 1 tbsp white wine vinegar, 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce and 1 tbsp agave nectar over the mixture and stir.  Add some black pepper to taste and serve.  


It’s great with grilled salmon or marinated & baked tofu.  It’s not only delicious, but chock full of plant-based protein, phyto (plant) nutrients and low in calories!
