Simple Saute

Mondays can be a hard day to recover from.  Half the time I haven't been to the grocery story yet, and get stuck watching cooking shows on PBS.  By evening there isn't anything cooked and I'm ready for my wine/beer and some travel shows on PBS.  No food, no blog.  Obviously, last week, I fell victim.  Not this week.  I had dinner finished before 6, and eating dinner with Avec Eric, and cleaned up by Rudy Maxa.  Now all that's left is the wine and maybe some knitting after I fill you in with a simple dish that takes max 10 minutes.

Ingredients:
1/2 onion sliced
2 broccoli tops cut down
3 medium carrots sliced
5 stalks of kale or approx half a plastic grocery bag chopped

Sauce:
6 tbs soy sauce
6 tbs hoisin sauce
6 tbs white vinegar
2 tbs corn starch
1 1/3 cup cold water

2 cups dried jasmine riced cooked as package directs (I do mine 1:2 ratio with lightly salted water)

Saute your veggies in a hot wok until they begin to wilt, approx 3-5 minutes.  While your waiting, mix your sauce ingredients in a lidded jar.  Shake until mixed well.  When the greens of the broccoli lighten and your kale starts drooping, add sauce.  Saute 3 minutes or so more until it thickens.  Serve over rice.

A real easy dish with LOTS of flavor.  Makes plenty for two, with enough for a tasty and healthy packed lunch the next day.  Just make sure your clean-up partner doesn't drop the super sharp knife on their foot while doing dishes.

Enjoy.
