Vegetable Stir Fry
My friend sends out a post card every month and this recipe was on it .
It is from a company called Sendsations. I changed just a few things plus I doubled it because there are never enough vegetables for my kids.
4 tablespoons sesame oil
1 sliced red pepper
1/2 cup scallions
8 cloves diced garlic
2 cups sliced mushrooms
1 1/2 cups sliced asparagus
1 can sliced water chestnuts
4 teaspoons rice vinegar
4 tablespoons hoisin sauce
4 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
2 cups cooked brown rice
2 shaved carrots
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds. [optional]
Heat the oil in a large skillet.
Add the onions and peppers.
Stir fry for three to four minutes.
Add the garlic, asparagus and mushrooms and stir fry for three to four more minutes.
Add the water chestnuts, hoisin sauce, ginger, carrots and black pepper.
Stir fry till all the vegetables are crunchy cooked.
Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and serve over the rice.
You must use fresh ginger and always stir fry on high heat.
