Summer Vegetable Stir-Fry

summer stir fry

Turn your farmers' market haul into a vegetable dinner stir-fry—for this recipe, there's no way to go wrong with garlic, ginger, and scallions. Ingredients

4 SERVINGS

 
  • 3 cups mixed tender herbs (such as basil, Thai basil, mint, cilantro, tarragon, and celery leaves), divided

  • ½ cup thinly sliced scallions, divided

  • 1 ½-inch piece peeled ginger, sliced

  • 1 garlic clove

  • 7 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

  • 2 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 cups cooked, cooled wheat berries, farro, or brown rice

  • 4 cups chopped mixed summer vegetables (such as bell peppers, eggplant, chiles, zucchini, summer squash, carrots, celery, radishes, and cherry tomatoes)

 

Preparation  

Combine 2 cups herbs, ¼ cup scallions, ginger, and garlic in a mini-processor. Pulse to chop ingredients. Add 4 Tbsp. oil, vinegar, and ¼ cup water and process until a coarse purée forms. Transfer herb sauce to a bowl and stir in sesame seeds. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Heat 1 Tbsp. oil in large heavy skillet over medium-high heat until oil just begins to smoke. Add remaining ¼ cup scallions and wheat berries. Stir-fry until wheat berries are golden brown and slightly crunchy, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Divide wheat berries among bowls.

Return skillet to medium-high heat and add remaining 2 Tbsp. oil. Add vegetables, season with salt and pepper, and stir-fry until brightly colored and crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Add remaining 1 cup herbs and toss to combine. Divide vegetables over wheat berries. Drizzle with herb sauce.

Do Ahead: Herb sauce can be made 2 hours ahead. Cover and chill.
