For the Vegetables

For the Garlic Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oil (sesame oil or any vegetable oil)
  • 5-6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili sauce (adjust to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch, dissolved in 2 tablespoons water (cornstarch slurry)
  • 1 cup vegetable broth or water
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Garnish

  • Chopped spring onion greens
  • Sesame seeds

Recipe Preparation

  • In a wok or large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add the minced garlic and grated ginger. Sauté for a minute or until fragrant, being careful not to burn them.
  • Add the chopped exotic vegetables to the wok. Stir-fry for a few minutes until they start to get tender but still retain some crunch.
  • In a small bowl, mix soy sauce and chili sauce together. Pour this sauce mixture over the vegetables. Toss everything together to coat the vegetables with the sauce.
  • Pour in the vegetable broth or water. Let the mixture come to a simmer.
  • Gradually add the cornstarch slurry while stirring constantly. This will help thicken the sauce.
  • Allow the sauce to simmer and thicken for a couple of minutes. If the sauce becomes too thick, you can add a bit more broth or water to achieve your desired consistency.
  • Season the dish with salt and pepper according to your taste.
  • Once the vegetables are cooked to your liking and the sauce has thickened, remove the wok from the heat.
  • Serve the Exotic Vegetables in Garlic Sauce hot, garnished with chopped spring onion greens and sesame seeds.
  • This dish can be enjoyed as a standalone main course served with steamed rice or noodles.

Feel free to adjust the ingredients, sauces, and spices based on your preference. Exotic Vegetables in Garlic Sauce is a versatile dish that can be customized to showcase the unique flavours of the vegetables you choose to include.
