Serve this colorful stir-fry alongside potstickers and steamed rice for an easy weeknight dinner.

Ingredients:
1 pound pac choi, cored and roughly chopped
½ pound baby Shiitake mushrooms, washed and trimmed
1 cup thinly-sliced radishes
2-3 garlic scallions, trimmed of root ends and chopped
1 leek, trimmed of root and tough green ends, and chopped
2 tablespoons vegetable or safflower oil
1 red or green jalapeño, thinly sliced (remove ribs and seeds for less heat)
4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 2-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and thinly sliced
6 tablespoons water
Soy sauce
