    Sweet Umami Miso Stir-Fried Veggies

    • 1/4 cup tahini
    • 2 tablespoons miso paste
    • juice from 1 lemon
    • 1 tablespoon reduced sodium tamari (or soy sauce)
    • 2 tablespoons maple syrup

 

Steps
  1. Set a large nonstick skillet or wok on medium-high heat.   Once hot add the oil and the Brussels sprouts (only).  Sauté for 1 -2  minutes, or until sear  marks  appear along the edges.  Then  reduce the heat to medium and cover the wok to cook for an additional 1 – 2 minutes, continuously monitoring to  make sure  nothing is burning.
  2. Add the remaining veggies and toss everything together on medium high heat.  The goal is to get a good sear on all the veggies, about 2 – 3 minutes.  Then reduce the heat back to low-medium and cover and cook 2 – 3 and ensure nothing is burning.
  3. Mix together the  ingredients for  the glaze and set  aside.
  4. Mix together the ingredients for the Tahini Sauce and set  aside.
  5. Once the veggies are a vibrant  color with sear marks and are crisp-tender, reduce the heat  in the skillet and pour in the glaze.   Toss the veggies in the glaze and remove from the heat.
