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.
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
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.
