I wanted a healthy veggie side dish to serve with the Ginger-Sesame Pork Chops that I was making for dinner. I grabbed red bell pepper, snow peas, broccoli, carrots, and shiitake mushrooms. I simply sautéed them in a little bit of canola oil and sesame oil and seasoned with crushed red pepper flakes, sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. I cooked them until they were still crisp-tender and bright & colorful. My kids loved these veggies with soy sauce drizzled on top.
Heat the canola oil, sesame oil, and crushed red pepper flakes in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the broccoli, red bell pepper, and shiitake mushrooms; cook, stirring often, for 2-3 minutes. Add the snow peas and carrot; cook, stirring often, for 1 minute. Add the minced garlic then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste and cook, stirring constantly, for 30-45 seconds. Remove from the heat and pour veggies into a serving bowl.
