Instructions

First, add butter, olive oil, 1/4 cup of minced garlic, and 1/4 cup of minced ginger to a wok. Let that simmer while you’re cutting the rest of the vegetables, but do not let it burn.

Next, dice about a cup of carrots, sweet potatoes, and onions, and add them to the wok. Let them cook for about 4 minutes.

Next, add a cup of chopped broccoli, brussels sprouts, and celery, let them cook for about 2 minutes.

Add a generous handful of spinach.

Add a 1/4 cup of toasted sesame oil and 1/4 cup of soy sauce and mix.

Now, put a half tablespoon of Thai Chili Paste in the bottom of the wok and stir it all around. Start with a half tablespoon, add more at your discretion. I add a lot, it is the key to this stir fry for me.

Add salt, pepper, more soy sauce, onion powder, and garlic powder.

Mix everything up for a few minutes. After mixing, put the burner on low and test the doneness of the carrots. Make sure the carrot has the correct hardness for you. I like mine very soft. I find that the state of the carrots is a good barometer for the entire stir fry. When the carrots are done, the rest of the veggies tend to be in a good place.

Turn the burner off and let the mixture sit for 2-3 minutes for all the flavor to really bind.

Enjoy over rice or noodles!

This vegetable stir fry has a great fridge life. I usually enjoy it for up to a week. It is a bit of an investment up front, but never disappoints.
