Veganmofo- Sesame Ginger Stir Fry

Last night for dinner we decided to try a recipe from our new book La Dolce Vegan!

This is our adaptation of the recipe:
(Eileen's) Neil and Lindsay's Sesame Ginger Stir-Fry

  • 1 cup of whole wheat couscous
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 package of may way natural veg chik'n
  • 1-8oz pkg of shiitake mushrooms
  • 1 T sesame oil
  • 3 T tahini
  • 1 T water
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 inch fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 pkg of stir fry mix (broccoli, carrots and snowpeas) from the produce section
  • 2 T soy sauce
In a medium pot cook the couscous according to directions.

While the couscous is cooking, in a wok on med-high heat, saute the onions, chik'n and mushrooms with the sesame oil. Cook until the onions are translucent.

In a small bowl, stir together the tahini and water until smooth. Set aside.

Add the garlic, ginger, and veggie to the pan and saute for 2-3 min. Add the tahini and soy sauce. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 4-6 min. Serve over couscous.
Makes 4 servings.

Hi Lindsay--
Thanks so much for your comment on my blog, and for reading! It is much appreciated. And it allowed me to find yours (how could I have missed it??). It looks as if you've got some amazing recipes here (that cake on the banner--wow) and I can't wait to explore a little more and see what I can find!

I've added you to my Google Reader (and hope to update my blog links asap). Thanks!

mmm... I just tried Quinoa but haven't experimented with Couscous yet. With Ginger and Sesame I don't see how it could go wrong. YUM!

This sounds yum. The thought of Garlic and Ginger is making my mouth water!

I haven't made much from this book yet but I know there are some gems in there so I should get to it.

You're not making it easy to not run out and get another cookbook :)
