  • ¼ cup low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoon arrowroot powder
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup julienne-cut carrots
  • 1 cup bias-cut celery
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 1 cup chopped stemmed kale
  • 2 cups hot cooked brown rice
  • 2 teaspoon sesame seeds, toasted


  • For sauce, in a small bowl combine the first six ingredients (through crushed red pepper) and ½ cup water. Mix well.
  • In a large wok or extra-large skillet cook and stir carrots, celery, onion, and garlic over high 5 minutes, adding water, 1 to 2 tablespoons at a time, as needed to prevent sticking. Add broccoli and kale; cook and stir 2 to 3 minutes or until broccoli is just starting to get tender.
  • Stir sauce and add to wok. Mix well; cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes or until sauce is thickened. Serve over rice. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

This was so good! Next time I'll add some marinated tofu


This was delicious. I added a block of tofu to make it a main dish and adjusted the sauce accordingly. One of my new favorite stir-fry recipes.
