How beautiful is this weeks Farm to Families produce box? I was able to use 5 ingredients from the box in this new recipe. I never had thought of using sweet potato in a stir fry, but it turned out SO well! 🙂
In Week 15’s box you will find: Bok choy, Cantaloupe, Corn, grapefruit, green bell peppers, mint, pears, romaine, shallots, strawberries, vine tomatoes, and 2 large yams. I love all vibrant colors in this dish…the orange and the green compliment each other so nicely. The bok choy is added in at the very end and contains a ton of vitamins and minerals – vitamin A, potassium, zinc, and vitamin C!

Sweet Potato Stir Fry
- 1 bunch of bok choy roughly chopped
- 1 cup frozen peas
- 1 large yam
- 1/2 white onion sliced
- 1 shallot finely diced
- 1/5 cup brown rice cooked
- 1 green bell pepper diced
- 1 cup mushrooms thinly sliced
- salt and pepper
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 3 cloves garlic chopped
- 6 T EVOO
- green onion for garnish
For the sauce
- 3 T low sodium soy sauce
- 1 T mirin
- 1 tsp. oyster sauce
- 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
- red pepper chili flakes
Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Saute white onion, shallots, and garlic for about 5 minutes. Next add in sweet potato, garlic powder and salt and pepper for 10 minutes. (Be careful - the sweet potatoes might stick to the bottom of your pan so make sure there is enough olive oil to coat them!)
While sweet potatoes are cooking, make the sauce. In a small saucepan, mix all ingredients together. Easy as that! Bring to a boil - add in corn starch + water mixture if you prefer a thicker sauce.
Then add in mushrooms, bok choy, bell pepper and peas. Stir together gently. Add in brown rice (or you can substitute with Quinoa).
