Stir-Fried Spring Vegetables with Chile, Garlic & Ginger

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

Ingredients:
1 pound broccolini, trimmed of any thick, tough ends and separated out into smaller florets
½ pound carrots, peeled and chopped into thin matchsticks
1 bunch Lollipop radishes, washed and thinly sliced
2-3 red spring onions, trimmed of root and tough outer ends and roughly 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

Method:
1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the jalapeño, garlic and ginger, stirring frequently, until softened about 1 minute.

2. Add broccolini, carrots, radishes and spring onions, then the water; cover and cook until vegetables are tender, 7-8 minutes. Uncover and sauté until any remaining liquid evaporates.

3. Splash vegetables with soy sauce to taste and serve.
