Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 red bell peppers, sliced
  • 2 large carrots, sliced into rounds
  • 3 cups broccoli
  • 1 cup snow peas
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, optional
  • pinch sea salt
  • pinch ground pepper
  • ¼ cup green onions, chopped

Sauce

Instructions 

  • First, prepare vegetables. Chop peppers, carrots and onion into similar sized pieces (about 1 inch).
  • Then, add sesame oil and olive oil to a skillet over medium heat.
  • Add chopped veggies, broccoli, snow peas, garlic, ginger, sea salt and pepper to the skillet.
  • Sauté on medium for 6 to 7 minutes or until veggies have softened.
  • Then, add in sauce ingredients. Turn heat to low.
  • Simmer for 5 to 7 minutes or until sauce has slightly thickened.
  • Finally, remove from heat and serve. Garnish with chopped green onions if desired.

Notes

  • Chop veggies into bite sized, similar sized pieces to ensure even cooking.
  • If you don't have sesame oil, replace with olive oil.  In that case, 2 tablespoons total of olive oil will be used.
  • Sauté until veggies have softened.
  • Simmer veggies with sauce until sauce has coated veggies and slightly thickened.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  • To reheat, add Pad Pak to a skillet with a drizzle of olive oil.  Heat on low until warmed.
  • Some Pad Pak recipes include water chestnuts, baby corn, and mushrooms.  Add to the skillet if desired.
