Szechuan-style Stir-Fry over Rice

This recipe is a fun and allergy-friendly dish that uses large amounts of delicious vegetables.  You can add in a handful of cooked chicken or shrimp, if desired.  The light sauce has a bit of a kick, thanks to the addition of Sriracha sauce.  We found it was a great way to use the piles of delicious fresh bok choy and kohlrabi from our vegetable CSA.  If you don't have kohlrabi, you can easily substitute in other crispy vegetables, like snap peas or sweet peppers.  Even vegetables like zucchini or delicata squash would work.  Enjoy!

Szechuan-style Stir-Fry over Rice
Serves 4

Cook 1 1/2 cups of your favorite rice.  Start this first, and then prepare all your vegetables and sauce.  If using a white basmati or white jasmine, these typically cook in 15-20 minutes, so everything will end up being ready about the same time, allowing 5-10 minutes for the rice to rest after cooking.  Give yourself some time if using brown or wild rices, as they take closer to 40-50 minutes to cook.

Mix sauce together in a small bowl:
1 tsp Sriracha chili sauce (this controls the level of spice in your dish - use less if you want it more mild)
2 tsp rice vinegar
3 tsp Bragg soy seasoning (GF soy sauce)
2 tsp grated ginger (frozen cubes work great)
1 tsp tomato paste
1 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp sugar or agave or honey
1/4 cup water

Over medium-high heat cook 1 minute:
2 Tbsp avocado oil (or another oil good for high-heat cooking)
2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 cup finely chopped celery

Add and cook 2-3 minutes:
3-4 cups sliced bok choy (it shrinks a lot during cooking)
1/2 - 1 kohlrabi, peeled, thinly sliced, then sliced in 1/2" pieces
1 minced hot pepper (optional, only add if you like it hot)

Add and cook 1-2 minutes, until just thickening:
Sauce, from above
1/2 cup cooked chicken or shrimp (optional)

Serve hot over rice.  Enjoy!
