Adapted from Gwyneth Paltrow’s “It’s All Good” Serves 4
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp finely minced ginger
4 large carrots, peeled and cut into matchsticks
1 tsp tamari (gluten free soy sauce)
1 tbsp black sesame seeds
A couple of drops of toasted sesame oil
Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add the ginger and cook, stirring constantly, for 30 seconds. Add the carrot matchsticks and stir to combine. Season with a pinch of sea salt and add 1/4 C water to the skillet.
Cook the carrots until they just begin to soften and the water evaporates, about 5 minutes. Stir in the sesame oil, soy sauce, and black sesame seeds. This dish is great as a veggie side with some grilled halibut and brown rice.
