Peanut butter stir fry dishSubmitted by: EATANDENJOY
1 cup brown rice, cooked
1 Tbsp peanut butter
1 Tbsp sesame oil
1 Tbsp tamari (or soy sauce)
1 tsp toasted sesame oil
2 Tbsp apple cider or brown rice vinegar
1 tsp dried hijiki, soaked and chopped
1 tsp sesame oil (untoasted) or olive oil
1 carrot, chopped
1 cup broccoli, chopped
˝ red pepper, diced
3 green onions, chopped
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. 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.
5. Toss the vegetables with the hijiki and peanut sauce, and serve over the brown rice. Garnish with chopped peanuts and fresh cilantro.
