Serious Stir Fry

I haven't made stir fry in almost two years but this was UNBELIEVABLE! Meant to be made with whatever veggies you have on hand, this mixture is not to be underestimated!


1 cup of rice (cooked per package directions)
3 cloves garlic
2 cups thinly sliced fennel (onion if you prefer)
2 cups chopped kale (or boy choy or spinach, the list goes on)
1 cup chopped broccoli (chopped into bite size pieces)
1 cup shittake mushroom (roughly chopped)
Vegetable oil
2 tablespoons Sesame oil
1/2 cup soy sauce Soy Sauce
Red Pepper Flakes (to your own liking)

Serve with wedges of lime and plum sauce

1. Heat vegetable oil in wok over high heat
2. When oil is nice and hot, add garlic and then quickly add fennel and stir to coat.  If the pan is super hot at this point you can add a 1/2 cup of water to help steam the veggies.
3. Let the wok do its magic for a few minutes and then add the kale and broccoli
4. About 5-7 minutes in your veggies should be looking really tempting but to spice things up add the sesame oil, soy sauce and red pepper flakes.  Turn heat down to medium on the stove.
5. Now comes the hard part....the longer you let this cook the BETTER your fry will be.  After about another 7 minutes on medium heat you can add the chopped shittake mushrooms and let those cook down another 4-5 minutes.
6. You've waited and now you get to enjoy this delicious dish served over rice.  I definitely recommend a nice plum sauce (Hoisin Sauce) to add a little sweet to the spicy dish.
