Brussel Sprouts and Broccoli Stir-Fry with Ginger Sesame Sauce (#freshtastyvalentines)


Brussel Sprouts and Broccoli Stir-Fry with Ginger Sesame Sauce | Tortillas and Honey

We are gearing up for the finale of Fresh Tasty Valentines! I hope that you've been enjoying this event hosted by Camilla from Culinary Adventures with Camilla. I've been participating in this event along with 20 other bloggers to present you with several recipes throughout the week and many many amazing sponsors who have provided prizes for our giveaways!



Today I'm sharing with you these Brussel Sprouts and Broccoli Stir-Fry with Ginger Sesame Sauce made with products from Mann Packing and T.Lish. Mann Packing is a majority-women owned company whose motto is "Veggies Made Easy." They have several veggies and veggie blends that are packaged and ready for use! T.Lish has three different sauces that you can use as a marinade, sauce, or dressing! It comes in three great flavors: chipotle, sweet garlic, and ginger sesame.





I decided to feature the Ginger Sesame flavor from T.Lish because when I opened the bottle, it smelled like the homemade dressing of one of my favorite salads (which I still need to feature on the blog). I also wanted to pair it with something a little more hearty, so I decided to make a stir fry inspired by a stir fry that I had seen featuring brussel sprouts! I found out last year that I really like brussel sprouts-- I've used it in pasta and I've roasted it so that it's caramelized. My mom also made a great recipe over the holidays that has candied walnuts. So I was excited to combine all of these flavors!

The packaged veggies (like Mann's) are really useful when you want to make a meal but don't want to be spending a lot of time prepping ingredients (sometimes it seems like it takes more time than actually making the dish!). So I used a package of brussel sprouts and a package of broccoli and carrot stir-fry mix. But, use whichever veggies you like!

This dish came out so wonderful. It's not incredibly saucy because the veggies soaked it all up, but feel free to add more sauce to your taste.

Do you make a unique stir-fry? I'd love to hear what kinds of stir-fries that you like to make!

Now, Mann Packing and T.Lish have contributed some great prizes to our giveaway!

Brussel Sprouts and Broccoli Stir-Fry with Ginger Sesame Sauce
a Tortillas and Honey original recipe

1 lb. chicken breast, diced into 1" pieces
3/4 c. T.Lish ginger sesame dressing and marinade, separated (1/4 c. for marinade, 1/2 c. for stir-fry)
2 Tbs. canola oil
12 oz. package of brussel sprouts, halved (like Mann's)
12 oz. package of broccoli and carrot stir fry mix (like Mann's)
1 garlic glove, minced
1 tsp. sesame oil
1/8 - 1/4 c. reduced sodium soy sauce
5 oz. can sliced water chestnuts, drained and rinsed
2 green onions, sliced (green parts only)
1/4 c. sliced almonds
quinoa or rice, for serving

In a ziploc bag, combine chicken and 1/4 c. of the marinade. Place in fridge and let marinate for about an hour.

In a large wok, heat the canola oil on high heat. Add chicken and marinade and cook until the chicken is fully cooked, stirring frequently. Remove chicken and set aside.

If needed, add more canola oil to the wok. Add the brussel sprouts and cook for about 4 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the stir fry mix and continue cooking until the vegetables become soft, about another 4-5 minutes. Add the garlic, sesame oil, soy sauce, and 1/2 c. reserved marinade and cook for about 5 minutes until the sauce has thickened and is absorbed by the vegetables. (The mixture will be really pungent at first, but the vinegar smell will cook away.)

Add the reserved chicken back along with the water chestnuts into the mixture and heat through. Stir in green onions and sliced almonds.

Serve atop quinoa or rice and garnish with additional green onions and sliced almonds.

Makes about 6 servings

  1. Love the veggies you included! I will use the rest of the Asian-Sesame TLish sauce to do a stir fry this week.

  2. I love stir fries, they are a great way to add veggies to a meal and to use up those little bits of veggies left from other meals. The TLish Asian dressing is my favorite.
