  • 1/2 cabbage
  • 1 broccoli head
  • 3 carrots
  • 2 garlic cloves (pressed or minced)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil (for stir frying)
  • 1 tsp sesame oil (for flavoring)
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste


  • Start heating water in a large pot, filled about 2/3 of the way. Add a few drop of oil to the water, this will help the vegetables keep their bright colors.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the vegetables. Rinse the cabbage and cut into about 1-inch pieces. Peel the carrots and cut into 1/2-inch slices on the diagonal. Rinse the broccoli and cut into bite size florets. Set aside.
    Note: you can use any vegetables you like here. If you are on a keto diet, substitute carrots for cauliflower or green beans for example.
  • Once the water is boiling, carefully drop the vegetables in the pot, stir, and turn the heat all the way up to bring the water back to a boil. Let the vegetables blanch for 3 minutes. Transfer the vegetables to a colander and let drain.
  • Meanwhile, heat a large wok or a skillet with 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. You can use any other oil of choice, such as canola or sunflower oil.
  • Add minced garlic to the heated oil and saute for 20 seconds to release aroma. Add the vegetables and fry, constantly stirring for about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add sesame oil and continue stirring for another 20 seconds or so.
  • Remove from heat and serve immediately or keep warm until ready to serve.
