Yield: 4 servings
|2 teaspoons||Ginger powder|
|4 teaspoons||Garlic; minced|
|2 tablespoons||Tamari sauce|
|2 tablespoons||Barley malt syrup|
|¼ cup||Oriental sesame oil|
|1 cup||Red bell peppers; coarsely diced|
|1 cup||Onions; coarsely diced|
|1½ cup||Flaked seitan; or 2 c. firm tofu|
|4||Mushrooms; (up to 8), quartered|
|1 cup||Green bell peppers; coarsely diced|
|1 cup||Celery; thinly sliced,|
|14||Snow pea pods; fresh,|
|; stemmed/diag. cut|
|3 cups||Cooked brown rice|
|Scallions and tomato-peel roses; for garnish|
Combine the ingredients for the sauce (the first 6 ingredients) and set aside.
Preheat your wok or saute pna before adding the oil. (If the oil is put in first, it will burn before the vegetables go in.) When the oil is hot, saute the red peppers, onions, seitan, and mushrooms for a minute. Continue stir-frying until the vegetables are half-cooked (about 2 min). Add the green peppers, celery, and snow peas, and continue stir-frying for another 3 minutes, still over high heat.
Give the sauce a quick stir to dissolve the arrowroot. Then pour it in the wok and blend all the ingredients. Stir vigorously to preven the sauce from lumping. (The sauce will not thicken unless the ingredients are thoroughly mixed. If necessary, dissolve about 3 tbsp arrowroot in water and add immediately.) Serve over brown rice, using ¾ cup rice per portion.
Garnish with scallion "flower" and/or tomato-peel rose, if you wish.
