Directions

Bring a medium-size saucepan of water to a boil then blanch the kohlrabi, carrot, and bitter melon separately for 2 minutes each. Blanch the green beans for 1 minute. Immediately transfer the vegetables to an ice bath to stop the cooking process and to keep the vegetables crisp.

Place a clay pot on high heat. Cook's Note: If using a clay pot, soak the pot in cold water 24 hours before using. Add the vegetable oil and fry the garlic until fragrant. Now add the sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, pepper, and water. Bring the mixture to the boil then add the drained vegetables, mushrooms, and tofu. Stir well to incorporate and allow to simmer for 5 minutes.

Garnish the dish with fresh coriander (cilantro) and serve with steamed jasmine rice.

    This is one of my new favorite recipes. My go-to food when I'm feeling poorly and want something healthy and comforting. I don't have a clay pot (I must get one!) so I just preheat a covered casserole dish in the oven and throw the mixture in there for about 15 minutes, until the veggies are just hot and tender. Delicious combination of flavors.
