Lentils & Veggies of the Stir Fried Variety

We had this for dinner last night. I loved it. Rory liked the flavor but isn't big on lentils. I told him we are going to acquire him a taste for them ! It was too spicy for the kids.
Serves 4
1 tbls sesame seeds
1 carrot, sliced
1 cup broccoli, chopped
1 cup zucchini, chopped
handful trimmed snow peas
Oil ( I used Olive)
1/2 a red bell pepper
1 tbls finely chopped garlic
1 tbls chopped peeled ginger
1/4 stp crushed chilli flakes
can of lentil ( brown or green )
3 or 4 spring onions, thinly sliced
3 tbls soy sauce
2 tsp sesame oil
Dry toast the sesame seeds and set aside.
Steam the carrots, broccoli, zucchini and snow peas for 5 minutes. Still want them crisp but tender. Pour into strainer and rinse with cool water so they stop cooking.
Heat oil in fry pan (med-high heat) add red peppers. Cook for a couple minutes. Add garlic, ginger and chilli flaskes. Cook briefly ... add steamed veggies, lentils, soy and sesame oil. Cook and stir for 3 or 4 minutes til heated through.
I served on brown rice. Sprinkle toasted sesame seeds on top.
