The vegetables can be changed to whatever you like.  I've also used mushrooms, regular onion, basically whatever I have in my fridge.
As for the sauce, the basics of it are soy sauce, vinegar, and a sweetener.  Play with the amounts to suit your specific taste.
You can even add chili paste, or flakes to turn up the heat! 🌶
