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


  • 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)

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


  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.
  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!
