This spicy vegetable stir-fry recipe with Wakame has a lovely mixture of greens and with the addition of seaweed it has extra nutrients and flavour – this meal is very nutritious as well as tasty!

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp macadamia oil

  • 1 shallot sliced

  • 2 spring onions sliced

  • 1 bunch of bok choy, trimmed

  • 1 bunch spinach, trimmed

  • 1/3 cup dried Wakame

  • ¼ cup coriander leaf

  • 1 tsp toasted sesame seeds

  • Dressing
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed

  • 1 cm piece ginger, grated

  • ½ small chilli, chopped fine

  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil

  • 1/2 tsp honey

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tbsp soy sauce

  • 1 tbsp lime juice

  • Freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  • First make the dressing by combining the ingredients. Set aside until needed.
  • Re-hydrate the wakame in tepid water for 5 minutes; then squeeze excess out.
  • Heat the oil in a skillet and cook the shallots & spring onion over medium heat for 1 minute.
  • Meanwhile, chop the bok choy, taking care to separate the leaves from the crunchy stem, cut the spinach.
  • Add the chopped bok choy stems and stir around with the onions for a couple of minutes, until the stems start to soften.
  • Add the bok choy leaves, chopped spinach and the chopped re-hydrated wakame to the wok and toss over high heat for another minute.
  • Add the dressing and stir until just wilted.
  • The vegetables should be different shades of green, very bright in colour and crunchy in texture.
  • Remove from heat and sprinkle with herbs and sesame seeds.  Serve immediately.

Notes

  • Spinach is known for its mineral content (in particular iron), Bok Choy is a Chinese cabbage full of antioxidants, vitamin C and folic acid, and wakame is also rich in iron, but has a wonderful combination of calcium, magnesium and potasium, as well as being low in sodium and high in detoxifying fibre.
  • Tip: The key to this dish is to not over-cook it. The vegetables have to be warm but bright green and still crunchy. For this reason, this dish should be served immediately and doesn’t do well re-heated.
  • Note:  A small amount of dry wakame goes a long way! It increases 10 times its weight and size upon re-hydration.
