Crunchy Stir Fried Sesame Greens

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by LilKiwiChicken

This is a nice accompaniment to steamed rice & fish & a good way to use any greens in your fridge. I used tamari in this recipe instead of regular soy sauce, which is good if you are not eating wheat. You can also use canola oil if you do not like using peanut oil. Please excuse the redness in the photo - that's just my camera/lighting/or me!

EXCELLENT! I doubled this and am glad I did. I made it with a bag of frozen baby brussel sprouts so started cooking them before adding the other veggies. I LOVED the veggie mix in this and the flavor of the sauce. I did sub fish sauce for the oyster sauce and used tamari as you suggest. Really yummy over rice.
