Now I admit, home made food is rarely ALL of the above, but last night I had a culinary a discovery that put a big little dent in that theory! I picked the elephant garlic, leek, all the greens and brocollini just a few minutes before I made the dish, so I am sure that helped it taste so wonderfully fresh. We are still reaping the benefits of our winter garden.
Awesome green veggie stir fry!
2 tsp toasted sesame oil.
1 clove elephant garlic
1″ of a leek, sliced thin.
3 large collared green leaves, (some like stems cut out, I leave them in)
3 large japanese cabbage leaves chopped
2 cups baby broccolini cut into pieces 2-3″
Toasted Sesame and Nori Seasoning found at japanese stores or at whole foods.
1 tsp rice vinegar
Heat the sesame oil in a copper skillet or stir fry pan on medium high. Add garlic and leeks, stir continuously for 2 minutes.
Add the broccolini in and toss constantly for 2 minutes. Add the greens and Seasoning, continue to toss for a final 2 minutes.
Remove from burner and place it in a bowl. Add the rice vinegar (i suppose you could use lemon??) and toss with a fork…or chopsticks and enjoy.
