Chinese-Style Stir-Fried Broccoli, Carrots and Leeks
- Trim the broccoli, discarding thick stems and leaves. Cut into flowerets. Slice carrots and leeks thinly.
- In a wok or large saute pan, heat the peanut oil. Add minced garlic and ginger and stir-fry briefly to flavor the oil. Add broccoli, carrots and leeks and toss briefly to mix well. Add chicken broth, cover and cook for 3 minutes over medium heat. Remove cover, raise heat, and cook, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes, until vegetables are tender.
- While vegetables are cooking, toast sesame seeds in a separate saute pan until they are golden brown. Set aside.
- When vegetables are done, add soy sauce and mix well. Remove from heat, turn into a warm serving bowl and sprinkle with sesame seeds and sesame oil. Serve immediately.
