Stir-Fried Carrots, Corn & Peppers

September/October 2011

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (25 votes)

This eclectic stir-fry is a colorful combination of carrot, red bell pepper, corn and romaine lettuce. This recipe exemplifies how to stir-fry vegetables with different textures. The carrots, which are a “hard” vegetable, should be stir-fried for a minute before you add “medium-hard” vegetables like peppers or corn, which require slightly less cooking. Finally, add “soft or leafy” vegetables in the last 30 seconds to ensure all the vegetables achieve the same level of doneness. Make sure the lettuce is dry—if it’s wet when added to the pan, it will turn the stir-fry into a braise.

A quick throw-together. The fresh ginger makes it all!

Quick to dice
Simple and delicious

I made this recipe exactly as described and used fresh corn from the cob. We all liked that it has ingredients that aren't typical of the usual stir fry. This will definitely become a regular at my house.
