In my quest to feed my family a more plant based diet, I have been experimenting with various sauces to make our whole grains more interesting. Taking the 30 Day Vegan course most certainly helped to inspire.
The other night I made a garlic kale stir fry.
First, I sauteed about 7 - 8 heads of finely chopped garlic in 1 T. sesame oil (a low heat setting).
Then, I added - 1/4 cup maple syrup, 1/8 cup organic tamari, 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, and the juice of 1/2 a lemon. Combine all over a low heat setting.
When the brown rice or other grain is ready to serve, add the chopped kale over the top of the sauce, put on a cover and let cook slightly for 1 minute - serve over the rice.
Right now we have lots of kale in our garden but you could certainly substitute whatever green you have on hand. I also like to add a few cashews to my own serving.
