Soy-Sesame Vegetable Sauté
I wanted to make a vegetable sauté to go with the fried rice I was making for dinner. I grabbed some broccoli, baby zucchini and bell pepper, sugar snap peas, and carrots along with some garlic, soy sauce, and sesame oil. I did a quick steam of the broccoli to make it just tender then sauteed the remaining veggies before adding garlic, soy sauce, and sesame oil right before serving. The veggies turned out delicious and paired perfectly with the fried rice. Quick, simple, and healthy – I love recipes like that!
Place the broccoli florets in a steamer tray that you have placed in a pot of boiling water. Once the water is boiling, place a lid on the pot and steam for 2-3 minutes or until broccoli is just tender. Remove from the pot of water and steamer immediately. Set aside.
While the broccoli is steaming, heat the canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, carrot, and bell pepper to the skillet. Cook, stirring often, for 4 minutes. Add the zucchini, sugar snap peas, and broccoli to the skillet. Add the minced garlic, soy sauce, and sesame oil then cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
