  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   1      tablespoon    vegetable broth, or more
   2      tablespoons   minced peeled gingerroot
   3                    garlic cloves -- crushed
   2      cups          sliced baby carrots
   2      cups          sliced baby zucchini
   1                    red bell pepper -- seeded and chopped
   1      each          yellow bell pepper -- seeded and chopped
   1      teaspoon      vegetarian bouillon granules
                        dissolved in 3/4 cup boiling water
   2 1/2  cups          orzo -- cooked

I modified this to be fatfree.  I also added some Kikkomin Stir Fry Sauce
while stir frying to keep it from getting too dry.

1.  In a wok or large skillet, heat the broth over low heat.  Saute the
gingerroot and garlic until deep brown, 4-5 minutes.

2.  Increase the heat to high;  add the carrots.  Stir-fry, adding the
zucchini, bell peppers and bouillon, until the vegetables are tender-crisp,
about 3 minutes.

3.  Add the orzo;  toss to combine.  Serve immediately.
