Directions for: Spicy Veggie Stir-Fry



1 pound thin spaghetti

Sesame oil, for drizzling

Low-sodium soy sauce, for drizzling


½ cup low-sodium soy sauce, plus more if needed

2 Tbsp sherry

2 Tbsp packed brown sugar

2 Tbsp cornstarch

2 Tbsp sriracha (more or less to taste)

1 Tbsp fresh ginger, minced

3 Tbsp peanut oil

1 yellow onion, cut into large chunks

1 red bell pepper, cut into large chunks

1 yellow bell pepper, cut into large chunks

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 zucchinis, cut into large wedges

1 (15 oz) can baby corn, can drained corn halved crosswise

1 head broccoli, cut into florets

Sesame seeds, for serving

2 green onions, sliced



1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Cook the spaghetti in the boiling water according to the package instructions. Drain, then drizzle with some sesame oil and a little soy sauce in a large bowl and toss.


1. While the noodles are cooking, mix together the soy sauce, sherry, brown sugar, cornstarch, sriracha and ginger in a bowl. Set aside.

2. Heat the peanut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and bell peppers and cook, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute more, stirring continuously. Add the zucchini and stir it around, cooking it for 2 minutes more. Add the baby corn and broccoli and cook for a couple of minutes.

3. While the veggies are still firm, pour in the sauce. Stir the veggies in the sauce and cook until the sauce is very thick, 1 to 2 minutes more. If it needs to be a little saucier, pour in 1/4 to 1/2 cup hot water and splash in a little more soy sauce.

4. Serve the stir-fry over the noodles with a sprinkling of sesame seeds and some slice green onions.
