Recipe by Chef Joey Z.

I got the original recipe from my DH's cousin and then she sent me the website, so I'm going to share it with you. It comes from the World's Healthiest Foods: www.whfoods.org. I added extra veggies to this and made a gravy for it at the end that wasn't in the recipe. It is advisable to have all the ingredients chopped and ready before you start cooking.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • FOR THE STIR-FRY

  • 1 tablespoon dried hijiki seaweed (soak in 3/4 cup hot water-save the water!) or 1 tablespoon arame seaweed (soak in 3/4 cup hot water-save the water!)
  • 1 medium onion (cut in half and sliced thin)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger (minced)
  • 3 garlic cloves (pressed)
  • 1 medium carrot (peeled and sliced thing-I julienned mine)
  • 2 cups broccoli florets (cut into 1/2 inch pieces)
  • 1 cup green cabbage (I used savoy and cut it thin)
  • 4 ounces tofu (I used the firm light kind-cut into 1/2 inch cubes)
  • 2 tablespoons light miso
  • 2 tablespoons tamari (or soy sauce)
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds (roasted)
  • FOR THE GRAVY (IF USING)

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot
  • 1 teaspoon honey

Directions

  1. FOR THE STIR-FRY:.
  2. Chop the onion and press the garlic. Let them sit for 5-10 minutes to bring out their health promoting benefits.
  3. Rinse and soak the hijiki or arame seaweed in 3/4 cup of hot water, and chop up the rest of your veggies.
  4. After 10 minutes, squeeze the hijiki out and save the liquid.
  5. Heat 1 tablespoons of the saved seaweed liquid in a large wok or saute pan and add the onions and carrots. Stir fry in the liquid over medium high for 2 minutes. Stir constantly.
  6. Add the garlic and ginger. Continue to stir constantly. The ginger might stick but don't worry, it will be fine when more liquid is added.
  7. After 2 minutes add the broccoli, stir fry for 2 more minutes.
  8. Add the cabbage. Dissolve the miso in 2 tablespoons of the seaweed water. Add the tamari, rice wine vinegar, hijiki or arame, and tofu.
  9. Continue stir frying for another 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the salt and pepper.
  10. Remove from the saute pan and put in a nice dish with the gravy if using.
  11. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and serve.
  12. FOR THE GRAVY(IF USING):.
  13. Mix one tablespoons of arrowroot flour with one cup cold water. Bring the left over liquid that is in the saute pan to a boil and add 1 teaspoons honey . Add the arrowroot flour liquid and using a whisk stir until thickened.
  14. Pour over the top of the sir-fry before you add the sesame seeds.
  15. Rice would be great with this dish.
  16. Bon Appetit!
