Ingredients

    3 Medium size Carrots (grated or finely chopped)
    1/4 c. Freshly grated Ginger
    1/4 c. Baby Onions (chopped)
    1/4 c. Seasoned Rice Vinegar
    1 Tbs. Lite Soy Sauce (Kikkoman is what I used)
    1 Tbs. Sesame Oil
    1/8 tsp. Salt
    1/8 tsp. Pepper
    1/2 c. Extra Light Olive Oil
    1/4 c. Water

    Optional: Add 1/2 tsp. of extra hot peri-peri sauce (I use Nando's) OR a drizzle of chili sauce for an added kick...yum!

Directions

1) Chop (or grate) carrots, onion, and ginger.

2) Pulse carrots in a food processor until finely ground (almost puréed). Add grated ginger, chopped onions, rice vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, and salt and pulse until ginger and onions are minced. With motor running, add olive oil in a slow stream.

Transfer mixture to a blender. Add 1/4 cup water and blend until smooth, 2 to 3 minutes. Thin dressing with additional water if desired.

Mix in toasted sesame seeds (leaving a little extra to sprinkle on top of dish)

To make into a stir-fry sauce: Add 1-2 Tbs. of Corn starch to dressing mixture and put in saucepan. Simmer on low heat (stirring constantly) for 2-3 minutes until mixture is thick consistency. Pour over stir-fry veggies, and sprinkle with some toasted sesame seeds. Enjoy!
