I was bored one day and only had a few veggies and rice and i thought why not make a tasty Stir fry. The General Tso's sauce is homemade so i tried to get as close to the real deal as i could. May end tasting more like a chinese bbq sauce.

1/2 chopped white onion
1 red pepper; chopped
2 bunches of broccoli; chopped
4 carrots: chopped
1 bunch of califlower
1 cup of brown rice (white)

Stir with whisk evenly distributing ingredients. Add Soy sauce and remaining spices. Stir. Allow mixture to begin slight boil at which point it should begin to caramelize into a syrup-like sauce. About 3 minutes. You may need to add more corn starch or water for desirable thickness.
