Ingredients

  • 1/3

    cup good-tasting stock (vegetarian or chicken stock)

  • 2

    tablespoons fish sauce (or substitute 2 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce)

  • 1

    tablespoon lime juice

  • 6

    cloves garlic, minced

  • 1

    teaspoon liquid honey (or substitute brown sugar), plus more to taste

  • 2

    teaspoon corn starch dissolved in 4 tblespoon water

  • 1

    red chili, minced, or 1 teaspoon chili sauce, or 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 3

    tablespoon rice wine for cooking

Directions

Place all ingredients, except garlic and cornstarch in a sauce pan over medium-high heat. When sauce begins to bubble, reduce heat to medium-low. Now add the minced garlic and cornstarch (dissolved in water). Stir until the sauce thickens slightly, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Do a taste test. You're looking for a balance of salty (fish sauce), spicy (garlic and chili), sour (lime), and sweet (sugar). Adjust these flavors to suit your taste. Add a little veggie oil to wok, add carrots, add some of the wine. Add all veggies and 1/3 of sauce. Add remaining sauce and tofu.
