simple spicy stir fry

i'm a spice maniac. seriously. my stomach must be made of steel because i love superhuman hot-ness in my foods. this dish will definitely clear the sinuses. i'd suggest modifying the chili paste based upon what you prefer. best of all, it's really low fat and low calorie if you stick to the oil measurements below.


  • 7 oz. frozen broccoli
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage and carrots
  • 2 tablespoons chili paste
  • 1 tablespoon chili oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons nama shoyu (or soy)
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, minced
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons ground sichuan peppercorns
heat oils and chili paste in a wok on high (about 400°). add in the broccoli, shoyu, galic and ginger and stir fry until well heated (about 7 minutes with frozen broccoli). add the rice vinegar and cabbage mix (i used bag coleslaw mix) and cook for about 5 minutes. toss in the ground sichuan peppercorns about 30 seconds before you finish stir frying.

this recipe only makes one bowl- perfect for the solo spice lover.

i love love love spicy food! i don't have any chili oil, but i'm sure that loads of sriracha would make up for that.

I love spice too! Which is funny cause when I was a kid, I didn't like spicy at all. But the older I get, the more I like spice.

Yum! Stir fries are the best. Sadly I don't own a cast iron stomach though so it's no chili for me (I do love me some spices and flavourings though!)It looks great!

this looks awesome. i love a bunch of veggies thrown together. somehow, it always manages to taste good.

my mom bought me the banana shirt at the andy warhol museum. i haven't heard that album, but now that i think of it, it is written somewhere on the shirt haha
