Vegetable Stir Fry
If you’re ever unsure of what to do with your veggies, stir fries are a great way to combine just about anything into a delicious and fast meal. Here’s a simple recipe using many Asian greens. All measurements are approximate, and feel free to substitute!
1 red or yellow onion, cut in half, then sliced to form strips
2 small or 1 large green or red pepper
1-2 salad turnips, sliced thin
1 head broccoli or cauliflower, cut into small pieces
1 bunch Asian greens (tatsoi, bok choy), washed well
2 Tablespoons high heat oil (e.g. peanut or canola)
3 Tablespoons soy sauce
½ teaspoon sugar
¼ Cup red cooking wine
¾ Cup vegetable broth (or water)
1 Tablespoon corn starch
- Heat oil in wok or frying pan. Add onion slices and sauté until soft. Add pepper, turnips, broccoli, greens and cover for 5 minutes, mixing well.
- Add cooking wine and vegetable broth to vegetables, and stir until all vegetables soften, and greens have wilted, about 10 minutes.
- In a separate bowl, combine soy sauce and sugar. Mix corn starch with 1 Tablespoon cold water and add to sauce, stirring quickly to thicken.
- Add soy sauce mixture to vegetables and stir. Let mixture boil down by about half.
- Serve over rice or as a side dish.
