DIRECTIONS

  • FOR THE STIR-FRY:.
  • Chop the onion and press the garlic. Let them sit for 5-10 minutes to bring out their health promoting benefits.
  • Rinse and soak the hijiki or arame seaweed in 3/4 cup of hot water, and chop up the rest of your veggies.
  • After 10 minutes, squeeze the hijiki out and save the liquid.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • After 2 minutes add the broccoli, stir fry for 2 more minutes.
  • Add the cabbage. Dissolve the miso in 2 tablespoons of the seaweed water. Add the tamari, rice wine vinegar, hijiki or arame, and tofu.
  • Continue stir frying for another 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the salt and pepper.
  • Remove from the saute pan and put in a nice dish with the gravy if using.
  • Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and serve.
  • FOR THE GRAVY(IF USING):.
  • 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.
  • Pour over the top of the sir-fry before you add the sesame seeds.
  • Rice would be great with this dish.
  • Bon Appetit!
