Vegetable Stir-Fry with Ginger Vinaigrette

  • FAST

Fresh and green and bursting with flavor, this stir-fry is like a little taste of springtime that you can serve any time of year. Carrots, red bell pepper, or asparagus (if it really isspringtime) will make the dish even prettier. Serve the medley with rice.

  1. 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  2. 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  3. 3 tablespoons cooking oil
  4. 1 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
  5. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  6. 1/8 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
  7. 3 cloves garlic, minced
  8. 1 large head bok choy (about 1 1/2 pounds), stalks cut into 1/2-inch pieces, leaves shredded
  9. 1/2 pound snow peas
  10. 10 radishes, quartered
  11. 4 teaspoons soy sauce
  12. 1/2 pound spinach, stems removed and leaves washed well
  13. 1/2 pound firm tofu, cut into 3/4-inch dice
  1. In a small glass or stainless-steel bowl, combine the ginger, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of the cooking oil, the sesame oil, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, and the pepper. Set aside.
  2. In a wok or a large nonstick frying pan, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons cooking oil over moderately high heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 10 seconds. Add the bok-choy stalks and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the snow peas and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the radishes and the soy sauce and cook, stirring, for 1 minute longer.
  3. Add the bok-choy leaves, the spinach, and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt to the pan. Cook, tossing gently, until the leaves just wilt, 1 to 2 minutes. Add all but 1 tablespoon of the vinaigrette and toss to coat. Remove the vegetables from the pan.
  4. In the same pan, heat the remaining tablespoon of vinaigrette over moderately high heat. Add the tofu and cook, turning occasionally, until warmed through, about 2 minutes. Return the vegetables to the pan and stir gently to mix.

Suggested Pairing

Nothing enhances the flavors of Asian seasonings and fresh vegetables as well as Riesling. Here, however, you can use a dry wine; a Rheingau Trocken (dry) Spätlese is a good choice.
