Super Quick Stir Fry with Homemade Peanut Sauce
I started working on this recipe before leaving for our wedding, when time was rather scarce and the importance of a slim waistline was at an all-time high. I've been consistently making this dish each week and it has become my favorite, busy-weeknight meal. I don't even have to get out my favorite global for this meal - this is a no-chop dish people!
1 12-16 oz. bag broccoli
1/2 16 oz. bag snow or snap peas
2 garlic cloves (optional)
1 10 oz. bag shredded cabbage
1/3 cup raw peanut or almond butter*
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon rice vinegar (unseasoned)
Dash stevia (optional)
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger (optional)
Toasted sesame oil, for drizzling
*Buy peanut or almond butter that does not have added sugar or other ingredients, like Trader Joe's Raw Almond Butter made solely from raw almonds.
Cover the bottom of a large skillet with extra-virgin olive oil and heat on medium. Add bag of broccoli, breaking up any extra large florets. Sprinkle the broccoli with salt and toss to coat with oil. Cover the skillet and steam until broccoli is just tender, approximately 10 minutes.
