By Heather Sheridan  ●  August 4, 2023

This quick stir fry and rice dish is easy for a hot lunch or quick dinner prep.

  1. Prepare your rice in a rice cooker, stove top, or you can use packaged microwavable rice.
  2.  Gently massage your greens with a small bit of olive oil and a pinch of salt, set aside.
  3. Heat oil over medium heat and add garlic and ginger. Saute until golden.
  4. Add greens and saute until lightly cooked, about 2 or 3 minutes.
  5. Serve greens over rice.
  6. Add some chili flakes for spice (optional).

  Serves 2 to 4 people

  • 1 tbsp tamarind paste
  • 1/2 c. Braggs Amino Acids (or other coconut aminos or low sodium tamari)

  • Juice of one lime
  • One clove minced garlic
  • 1 tsp sriracha sauce (more if you prefer a bit of spice)
  • 2 tsp. Hoisin sauce (I like Yau’s as it’s vegan and gluten-free)

Taste for sweetness and spiciness, and adjust to taste.
