Japanese veggie stir-fry step by step
- Add the sugar and salt to a pan of water, bring to the boil and add the rice. Leave this to cook while you make the rest of the meal..
- Combine all the sauce ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Set aside..
- I used this next bit of rice-cooking time to prep my vegetables, and placed them all together ready in my colander. Once the veg is prepared heat the sunflower oil in a wok (or large frying pan). When hot, add the veg, stirring continuously and adding little bits of water as needed to keep the cooking vegetables moist and steamy. Once the leaves are wilted, add the sauce and continue stirring for a couple more minutes. Remove from the heat..
- If you've timed it right, the rice will be cooked now. Drain well, return the rice to the still-hot pan, and stir in the sesame oil for maybe 30 seconds or so..
- Add the rice to your plates and then pile on the veg! We had a little dish of miso leeks (recipe by Japanese Ideas on Cookpad) on the side. Delicious!.
Add salt, pepper, soy sauce to taste, mix, and remove from heat to serve. The first thing I learned about Japanese cooking is that all the sauces were some combination of shoyu, rice vinegar, sugar, and mirin. This is a quick and easy meal that I made up. Shoyu is a Japanese soy sauce. It gives a much richer flavor than regular soy sauce, and tastes less salty.
