Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup garlic powder
  • 4 teaspoons ginger powder
  • 2 teaspoons muscovado, rapadura, or coconut sugar (see notes)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper

Instructions

To make the spice mix

  1. Mix all ingredients well and store in the pantry in a sealed container.

To use the spice mix:

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large wok over high heat and sauté 1 pound of meat or other protein of your choice, until golden.
  2. Add 4 cups of chopped vegetables, and saute until warmed through.
  3. Add 2 tablespoons spice mix and 2 tablespoons soy sauce to the meat and vegetables. Saute until evenly coated. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

If you prefer not to use granulated sugars, omit the sugar in the seasoning mix and add 1/2 tsp raw honey when you cook your stir fry.

Be sure to check the ingredients list on your soy sauce! While traditional soy sauce meets the unprocessed requirements, many brands sneak preservatives and other ingredients into their sauces. Also, Tamari is a great gluten-free option.
