Vegetable “My Thai”

Wok could be better than spicy Thai food to warm you up? Thai flavors are absolutely some of my favorite not to mention so quick and easy to make. Once you get the sauce down, you can add any vegetables you want and throw them all in a wok! Easy and impressive in under 20 minutes!

– 3 tbs of soy or tahini
– 1 tbs of sesame oil
– 2 tbs of rice vinegar or white vinegar
– 1-2 tbs of dark brown sugar
– 2-3 tbs of fish sauce
– 2 tsps of chili paste (can be removed for less heat)
– 1/3 cup of vegetable broth
– 1 tsp of fresh grated ginger
– 1 tbs of avocado oil (may use other oils if desired)
– 1 bell pepper chopped or cut into strips
– 1/2 cup of sliced mushrooms
– 1/2 a can of sliced water chestnuts (drained)
– 1/2 a can of baby corn
– 1/2 cup of broccoli
– 1/2 of package of firm tofu cut into cubes

“My Thai Sauce”
In a small pot on medium heat I combine the soy or tahini sauce, fish sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar or white vinegar,dark brown sugar, vegetable broth, chili paste, and fresh grated ginger! To thicken sauce you can mix 1/4 cup of water and 1-2 tsp of corn starch and add to sauce!

In a wok, on high heat, I put a tbs of avocado oil, which I find works best with high heat.
*** Here you can get creative with your veggies/protein. But make sure you chop your veggies in similar sizes so that they could evenly!

If I am cooking with tofu, I always place it in first before my veggies, so I can get a nice crisp on the outside of each piece. After the tofu cooks for about 3 minutes, I add in my peppers and mushrooms. I let them cook down fully and then add my broccoli, corn, and water chestnuts. Because soy sauce is so salty, I only add pepper to these veggies.

When the veggies are browned and thoroughly cooked through I turn my heat down to low and fold in “My Thai sauce!” As pictured, I mixed in about 1/2 a cup of cooked rice into my veggie mixture. However, you could eat this with riced cauliflower, rice noodles, or just by itself.

I hope you enjoy “My Thai” and I look forward to hearing how “Your Thai” comes out!
