Dairy FreeVegan

Ingredients

Stir-fry

  • 1-2 tbsp oil for frying
  • 1 onion
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 zucchini
  • 100 g shiitake mushrooms
  • 4-5 mini bok-choys
  • 300 g firm tofu
  • Salt to taste
  • Sesame seeds to serve

Sauce

  • 2 tbsp concentrated apple juice
  • 2 tbsp shoyu or tamari
  • 1/4 – 1/2 tsp ginger powder
  • 250 ml water
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot + 2tbs cold water

Preparation

  1. Wash the carrots, bock choy and zucchini, gently rub the shiitake with wet paper towel. Cut the carrot and zucchini into matchsticks, tofu in approximately 2 cm cubes and shiitake in half, set aside.
  2. Chop the garlic and onion. Heat a large non-stick skillet or wok, and, when it is hot, add the garlic and the onion and stir for about 1 minute. Add the carrots, zucchini and shiitake, stir for 2-3 minutes and add the tofu. Cover with a lid, lower the heat and let cook for 3-4 minutes.
  3. Cut off the edges of bock choy, chop  them coarsely and add to the stir-fry. Add a very little bit of salt (you will be adding soy sauce later), stir well, put the lid on again and cook for about 2-3 more minutes.
  4. Mix all the sauce ingredients but arrowroot in a bowl. Stir in the arrowroot in cold water. When dissolved completely, add it to the sauce mix, stir well and pour over the stir-fry. Mix well and cook very shortly, until the sauce thickens to the desired consistency (caution: it will happen quickly).
  5. Sprinkle the sesame seeds over the stir-fry and serve.
