Broccoli and pepper stir fry with edamame

You need:
1 head broccoli, with the florets trimmed off
1-2 carrots, julienned
1 red bell pepper, julienned
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 bag frozen edamame beans (I found these in the freezer in the organic section)
Kikkoman stir fry sauce (actually is pretty low cal and fat free)
low sodium soy sauce

Heat up a sautee pan or wok over high heat. Add 1-2 tables spoons of olive oil or sesame oil if you have it. Add the broccoli, red pepper strips, and garlic. Add 2 table spoons of water and 2 tablespoons of soy sauce and cover (this allows the vegetables to steam). Once everything is softened (about 4 minutes), reduce heat and add a good drizzle of stir fry sauce to cover everything ( about 1/2 a cup?)

While the vegetables are cooking, microwave your edamame beans according to the package directions. Add into the stir fry when they are done.
