In general, Cambodian dishes love to incorporate a balance of sweet, bitter, sour, and salty. This simple vegetable and noodle stir-fry is cooked in a delicious sauce that incorporates all those flavors with coconut sugar, pineapple purée, tamari, and salt. Fresh sliced chili in the vegetable mix adds a layer of heat while sesame oil adds distinct nuttiness. This is a simple, fragrant dish that can be thrown together in under 30 minutes and the sauce is perfect for those cleaning-out-the-fridge stir-fry days.
