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
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!
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.
