  • 1 1/2 cups red bell peppers, sliced thin
  • 1/2 cup green bell pepper, sliced thin
  • 1 1/2 cups snow peas
  • 1 1/2 cups bok choy, sliced
  • 4 tablespoons baby leeks, sliced
  • 1 cup carrot, thinly sliced
  • 2-4 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1/8 teaspoon fresh red chilies, chopped
  • 4 teaspoons tamari soy sauce

In a large saucepan or wok, heat the oil over high heat until hot but not smoking.

Toss in the vegetables and seasonings and stir-fry for 3 to 6 minutes, stirring 5 to 7 times. The vegetables should be slightly crunchy.If you would like them a little more tender, cook a few minutes longer. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Drizzle over sesame oil, if using.
