Recipe: STIR FRY WEEK: VEGETABLE-NOODLE STIR FRY

A stir fry is a perfect weeknight meal; it is easy to make and is a good way to clear out the fridge and get your veggie servings in. Today's stir-fry recipe comes from the Rachael Ray magazine's website, www.rachaelraymag.com.

INGREDIENTS

1 pound whole grain spaghetti or linguine pasta

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

2 large eggs, beaten

2 baby bok choy, thinly sliced

1 small red bell pepper, halved and thinly sliced

1 small bunch scallions, chopped into 3-inch lengths

1/2 cup shredded carrots

A handful of snow peas, thinly sliced on an angle

One 1-inch piece fresh ginger, grated

2 large cloves garlic, finely chopped

1/4 cup tamari or other soy sauce

3 tablespoons black bean sauce

Juice of 1 lime

1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce or sambal olek sauce

1 tablespoon honey or sugar

1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil



DIRECTIONS

Bring a large pot of water to a boil, salt it, add the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain.

While the pasta is working, in a large skillet or wok, heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, 1 turn of the pan, over high heat. Add the eggs and scramble until firm. Transfer to a plate. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, 2 turns of the pan, and heat until smoking. Add the bok choy, bell pepper, scallions, carrots and snow peas and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add the ginger and garlic and stir-fry for 1 minute more.

In a small bowl, stir together the tamari, black bean sauce, lime juice, hot sauce, honey and sesame oil.

Toss the pasta with the sauce and vegetables. Top with the egg.
