Vegetable Stir-Fry with Garlic-Miso Sauce

Here’s just a simple stir-fry recipe to use up some of the odds and ends in the fridge, or to try with some of this week’s eggplant and green beans. Serve it over rice, or, if you’re feeling decadent, over fried potatoes.

Vegetable Stir-Fry with Garlic-Miso Sauce

3 tablespoons vegetable oil
6 large garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon yellow miso
1 teaspoon oyster sauce
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 pound assorted vegetables (such as broccoli, green beans, eggplant, bell pepper and bean sprouts), cut into bite-size pieces
1 jalapeño chili, seeded, thinly sliced

Heat oil in heavy large skillet over high heat. Add garlic and sauté until golden, about 2 minutes. Add yellow miso, oyster sauce and sugar and stir to blend. Add vegetables and jalapeño and sauté until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 10 to 20 minutes depending on which vegetables you use. Serve immediately.
