Ingredients

  • Sauce
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk

  • 3 tbsp chicken stock

  • 2 tbsp coconut aminos

  • 3 ½ tbsp fresh lime juice

  • 2 tbsp fresh orange juice

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1/3 to ½ tsp dried chili flakes

  • 1 tsp arrowroot powder

  • Stir-Fry
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

  • 5-6 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tsp grated ginger

  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. dried chili flakes

  • 1 onion, sliced thin

  • 1 cup carrots, sliced thin

  • 2 cups broccoli, chopped

  • 2 cups sugar snap peas

  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced into strips

  • Garnish with roasted sesame seeds and green onions, chopped

  • Serve on top of cauliflower rice (if desired)

Directions

  • Sauce
  • Combine all “Sauce” ingredients in a small bowl, stirring well. Taste-test the sauce, keeping in mind that the first taste should be spicy-salty, followed by sweet and finally the rich taste of the coconut milk. Adjust these flavors to suit your taste, adding more lime juice if too sweet or salty (note: it will be less salty when combined with the stir-fry).
  • Stir-Fry
  • Heat coconut oil in a wok or large pan on medium-high heat. Add garlic, ginger, and dried chili flakes; lightly sauté for 1 minute. Add onion, carrots, and 1/4 of the stir-fry sauce; lightly sauté for 2 minutes. Add remaining vegetables plus stir-fry sauce; sauté for 5 to 7 minutes or until vegetables are tender-crisp.
  • Remove the pan from heat and do one last taste-test. If not salty enough, add a little more coconut aminos. If too salty or sweet, add another squeeze of lime juice. Add more orange juice or chili if desired.
  • Serve on top of cauliflower rice (if desired). Garnish with roasted sesame seeds and green onions. ENJOY!
