Ingredients

  • 1 small head of cauliflower, cut into florets (about 4 cups or 400g)
  • 1 small head of broccoli, cut into florets (about 4 cups or 400g)
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon (15ml) sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon (15ml) vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon (5g) ginger, grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5g) red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh cilantro or green onions, for garnish

Cooking Instructions

  1. In a large skillet or wok, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the minced garlic and grated ginger to the hot oil and sauté for about 30 seconds until fragrant.
  3. Add the sliced onion and bell peppers to the skillet and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes until they start to soften.
  4. Next, add the cauliflower and broccoli florets to the skillet. Stir-fry for another 5-6 minutes until the vegetables are crisp-tender.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes (if using). Pour the sauce over the vegetables and toss to coat evenly.
  6. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens slightly and coats the vegetables.
  7. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Be mindful of the salt as the soy sauce already adds a savory flavor.
  8. Remove from heat and garnish with fresh cilantro or green onions.
  9. Serve the Cauliflower and Broccoli Stir-Fry hot as a standalone dish or as a side with steamed rice or noodles.
