Almond Jade Stir-fry

Almond Jade Stir-fry


  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 2 cloves garlic, halved
  • 1/4 cup whole blanched almonds
  • 8 cups assorted vegetables, thinly sliced (choose from carrots, mushrooms, bell peppers, snow peas, celery, broccoli and green beans)
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons hot chili sauce
  • Salt and pepper, to taste



Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil and the garlic in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add almonds; cook and toss about 8 minutes, until lightly browned, removing garlic after 4 minutes. Remove almonds with slotted spoon; set aside. Add the remaining oil to skillet; increase heat to high and add vegetables. Stir-fry, tossing often about 5 minutes until crisp-tender. Reduce heat to medium.

In small bowl combine remaining ingredients except salt and pepper; mix thoroughly. Add soy sauce mixture; cook until heated through, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Mix in almonds. Serve with steamed rice.
