Wash and prepare all vegetables, peel and cut pineapple, prepare lemon juice.

Place a wok or frying pan over medium-high heat. When it is hot enough add some olive oil. When the oil begins to smoke, add the onion, garlic, cabbage and the ginger, stir-fry for 2 minutes.

Add the pineapple, carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, potatoes, chilies (or chili powder), tomato and the mushrooms, stir-fry for 3 minutes.

Stir briefly, then add water, lemon juice, vinegar, chives, parsley, black pepper, salt, soy sauce, sugar and sesame oil. Reduce heat to simmer covered for about 3 - 5 minutes until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.
