Vegetable and Peanut Butter Stir Fry

HealthyVegan's picture
I love making this peanut butter stir fry! Stir frying is very useful in healthy vegan recipes since it cooks the vegetables lightly, very quickly, with very little oil and very little water. This means that they retain almost all of their nutrients, but are softened for easier digestion and sweeter flavor.
  Brown rice 1 Cup (16 tbs), cooked
  Peanut butter 1 Tablespoon
  Sesame oil 1 Tablespoon
  Tamari/Soy sauce 1 Tablespoon
  Toasted sesame oil 1 Teaspoon
  Apple cider/Brown rice vinegar 2 Tablespoon
  Dried hijiki 1 Teaspoon, soaked and chopped
  Sesame oil/Olive oil 1 Teaspoon (Untoasted)
  Carrot 1 , chopped
  Broccoli 1 Cup (16 tbs), chopped
  Red pepper 1⁄2 , diced
  Green onions 3 , chopped

Start by cooking the rice. Rinse the rice with water, drain, add 2 cups water for every 1 cup rice. Sprinkle a bit of sea salt in the water, bring it to a boil for a couple of minutes, then turn down to low and simmer for 45 minutes. Rice is fully cooked when it is dry and fluffy. Do not stir the rice while it is cooking.
While the rice is cooking, prepare the sauce. Put all of the sauce ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine. Adjust tamari and chili to your taste, and let the sauce sit while you prepare the vegetables.
Soak the hijiki seaweed in water so that it softens. It will expand, so chop it into smaller pieces. Another type of seaweed will work as well.
The stir fry will only take about 10 minutes, so allow the rice to cook before you start cooking the vegetables. Heat a wok on high, and stir fry the carrot in sesame oil. Add the broccoli next, then the red pepper. Once they have been crisped, pour 1 Tbsp of water into the pan and stir while the water sizzles off. Remove the vegetables from the wok immediately after the water cooks off.
Toss the vegetables with the hijiki and peanut sauce, and serve over the brown rice. Garnish with chopped peanuts and fresh cilantro. I hope you enjoy this peanut butter stir fry, the latest of my healthy vegan recipes.
