Here is a side item that can be added to any meal or a light entree. It is packed with flavor, and you can use any vegetable in the house. I enjoy mushrooms for earthiness and a nice green leafy vegetable such as bok choy.
Nuoc Mam Stir Fry Vegetables
Assorted Vegetables cut in similar size pieces
2 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp canola oil
Nuoc Mam to taste
Using high heat and saute pan or wok, sweat garlic, onions, and chili in oil. When it becomes nice and fragrant, add carrots and celery. Cook about 2-3 minutes and move to side to get a nice open space (if possible), then add mushrooms. Cook until they become nice and brown. Toss everything together and add bok choy. Gently wilt, then deglaze with nuoc mam. Cook another minute or so and ENJOY!!!
