Nice taste, but the cooking times produced mushy, overdone carrots. Next time I'll just barely blanche them.
Very tasty dish, with the lovely ginger flavor. I'm not sure the celery and red pepper added a whole lot, I think you could do it with just the carrots and broccoli. A note on the pre-cooking of the carrots -- if you like the carrots on the softer side (as opposed to crunchy) I steamed them for 20 minutes before I stir fried them with the broccoli. I steamed the broccoli for 6 minutes before stir frying. The carrots really do take that long -- I kept checking them and they weren't soft enough for a fork to prick them easily until 20 minutes of steaming. I used the peeled baby carrots and I left them whole.
We really enjoyed this vegetable dish. I microwaved the carrots for about 2 minutes and then added to the broccoli and steamed until broccoli was crisp tender. The seasame seeds were reduced by about half. I enjoyed the crunch of the celery.
I'm sorry to say that I don't think I'll be making this one again.. I blanched the carrots only very slightly like one other reviewer suggested and they still took FOREVER, my other vegetables were done FAR longer than the carrots, by the end they were still hard after being sauteed for quite a while, so I just omitted them completely because the rest of my dinner was ready. I would recommend boiling the carrots for much longer, at least until they are tender.
This was very flavourful, but sorry Becel people I used butter! I found that steaming the veggies until they were tender crisp produced good results.
