Recipe Directions

Ingredients


  • 1 1/2 tbsp Nama Shoyu/Braggs Liquid Aminos
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Ume Plum Vinegar (if you have it) or Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Agave Nectar
  • 2 tsp Sesame Oil
  • 1/4 tsp Grated Ginger
  • 1 pinch Asafoetida or 1 clove Garlic


  • 1 zucchini – chopped
  • 1 carrot – chopped
  • 1/2 head broccoli – chopped
  • 1 bellpepper – chopped
  • 1 cup pealed and chopped sunchokes *
  • 1 cup peanuts
  • 1/4 head iceberg lettuce



    Directions





    Lets see how short I can make this (just to show you how simple this really is):

    Put chopped vegetables, except lettuce, and peanuts into a bowl. Mix in the rest of the ingredients. Let sit and marinate for 15-20 minutes. Serve over lettuce as pictured. Eat it and enjoy!



    Notes


  • Ume Plum Vinegar can be hard to find raw, and its very expensive. So if you don’t mind normal ume plum vinegar, use it, otherwise ACV works just fine.
    • Asafoetida is a powdered spice available in most Indian grocery stores. It is used as a replacement for garlic, because garlic (along with onion) is considered to be rajsaic.
      • Sunchokes are a native American vegetable that for some reason haven’t really caught on in their home country. I usually find mine at Trader Joes.

Well, my attempt this week to make an Indian style dish ended up in a funk of different flavors that didn’t exactly please the palette. So after having a somewhat unpleasant lunch and getting inspired by an episode of Iron Chef, I decided to take a new direction and make some thing with a little Asian flavor. I’ve always enjoyed simple, stir-fry dishes, because they really bring out the flavor of the vegetables, instead of masking them with all sorts of spices and sauces. That’s exactly the flavor I was going for with this dish, which has the added benefit of being ridiculously simple to make. For anyone who doesn’t have an hour to prepare dinner, I’m sure this will be one of your new favorites.

Wow, this was fantastic. I used the apple cider vinegar and Asafoetida options. We have roasted peanuts so I just used those but I might try some raw cashews next time instead.

I just made this for lunch. Yummo! Thanks. Super easy & tasty.

I will admit, I can't stick to a recipe if my life depended on it. :) So I did this variation:

1 1/2 tbsp Braggs Liquid Aminos

1 1/2 tbsp Ume Plum Vinegar

1 tbsp Agave Nectar

2 tsp Sesame Oil

1/4 tsp powdered ginger (didn't have fresh;bummer!)

1 zucchini – small julienne on mandoline

1 carrot – small julienne on mandoline

1/2 cup sliced white mushrooms

1/2 cup sugar snap peas in pod, whole

Tossed em all together!

I had jicima, but with my other additions, I decided it didn't need it. But I'm sure it would be tasty!

Thanks again!

This is great! The Chinese Club at my school has a meeting in a few days, and while they'll all be eating salty unhealthy food from Pei Wei, I'm going to eat this. Thanks!

Roshi...I LOVE how the majority of your recipes are easy MEAL recipes. Everyone comes up with smoothies and desserts and the actual MEAL recipes are far and few between. ...and of course all of them are fabulous! This one is no exception! I ate it for dinner and leftover the next day. Thanks so much!!! Keep up the great work! I am a HUGE fan and look forward to the next one! :0)

Hey there Roshi...I am just thinking my friend Brian Lucas- Chef Belive Is having a dinner where by he is making raw indian food. Its on the 9th of November and I reckon you should go along and check out his food. I would LOVE to be there except I live in Oz. I think tickets cost a little, but you could chat bout his indian recipes and talk to him bout authenticities of indian cuisine....I am sure he would love that!!!! Just a thought. He is on eat.rawfood.com.......you helped me with the tips for India...I am very very lucky to have met cha through internet before my big adventure. Let me know if your interested in the dinner......will forward you info hon. Be quick as tickets are selling out apparently. There will be indian band and dancing too I think....

This recipe looks fantastic! Beware the smell of Asafoetida, but the taste is terrific. Reduces stomach gas as well, paradoxically!

I think jicama my sub well for the sunchokes if you can't find them. You can also dig sunchokes as they grow wild in many parts of the U.S.

I too have been using a lot of ginger. Thank you thank you for the garlic substitute recommendation. I heard that garlic causes ADHD type symptoms, and I believe it to be true (from my own experience). It's been such a pain avoiding such a delicious spice. I will have to try it.

This recipe looks delicious!
