Broccoli Peanut Stir-fry

This orangey, sesame, peanuty goodness can be ready and on the table long before a take-out order would arrive. Why wait for take-out? Get chopping and get nomming.

Tip: To thaw frozen spinach quickly, put it in a mesh strainer and run under warm water. You can microwave it for 1-2 minutes to reduce the time under the colander, but be careful not to cook the spinach in the thawing process.

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp. vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 2 large carrots, sliced
  • 1 cup frozen spinach, thawed
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 1 tsp. cornstarch
  • ½ tsp. ginger
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 4 Tbsp. light soy sauce
  • ¼ cup peanuts, chopped
  • 3 cups cooked brown rice

Directions

  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté the garlic and mushrooms until golden (1-2 minutes). Add the carrots and spinach and cook for 3 minutes.
  2. Whisk the orange juice with the cornstarch, ginger and sesame oil. Add this mixture, with the broccoli, to the skillet. Cook and stir until the broccoli is tender (3 minutes).
  3. Stir in the soy sauce and peanuts. Serve hot over brown rice.
