Garlic-Ginger Vegetable Stir-Fry

Serve this fragrant stir-fry with noodles and a side of this week’s pork pelmeni; alternatively, we also love topping each serving with a fried egg and extra hot sauce.

Ingredients:
½ cup soy sauce
½ cup hoisin sauce
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons freshly-grated ginger
1- 2 tablespoons Sun Sauce or Sriracha (optional)
2 tablespoons sesame oil or vegetable oil
8 ounces mushrooms, such as Shiitake, washed and sliced if very large
2 cups green beans, trimmed of ends and cut in half
1 cup carrots, peeled and thinly-sliced into rounds
1 Lesya pepper, de-seeded and cut into strips
6 cups greens, such as a combination of Red Cloud Asian greens, pea shoots and baby bok choy
1 yellow onion, cut into slices
1 bunch scallions, trimmed of root ends and minced

Method:
1. In a bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, hoisin sauce, garlic, ginger and Sun Sauce or Sriracha until combined.

2. In a large skillet over medium high heat, add the sesame or vegetable oil to heat and then add all the prepped vegetables and greens. Cook 5 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic-ginger sauce. Cook for an additional 3 to 4 minutes, tossing to coat the veggies with the sauce. Serve with scallions and sesame seeds on top, if desired.

Cremini Mushroom Risotto with Grilled Vegetable Medley

A summery spin on a farmhouse favorite—just remember to stir!

Ingredients:
1½ cups Arborio rice
4-5 cups warm chicken stock
½ cup white wine (if desired)
½ finely chopped onions or shallots
1-2 tablespoons chopped garlic (if desired)
1 cup Cremini mushrooms, washed, dried and sautéed until golden brown in butter
8 tablespoons butter or olive oil (can use a mixture)
½ cup grated Grana cheese
2 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley
Fresh ground pepper to taste
Lemon
Grilled Vegetable Medley (see recipe)

Method:
1. In a saucepan, bring the chicken stock to a boil and then turn down to a simmer to keep hot. In another large saucepan over medium low heat, melt 4-5 tablespoons of butter and cook the onions or shallots until soft but not brown.

2. Add garlic and continue cooking for about 2 minutes. Turn the heat up and add the Arborio rice. Stir for about one minute.

3. Add a ladleful of stock to the rice and continue stirring until almost absorbed. Add another ladleful of stock and the wine and continue stirring—repeat until all the stock is gone and the rice is creamy and tender.

4. Stir in the remaining butter, sautéed mushrooms, and grated Grana cheese until melted. Sprinkle with fresh parsley and season to taste with pepper, and serve each portion topped with a hearty helping of Grilled Vegetable Medley, a drizzle of olive oil and a squeeze of lemon .
