Stir-fry

1

Heat a wok over medium-high heat, then add the oil. Add the garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes. Saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

2

Add the daikon, carrots, zucchini, yellow squash, cucumbers, red peppers, half a cup of the green onions and the cabbage and saute 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3

Add the stir-fry sauce and tofu, and stir until the sauce reduces into the vegetable mix. Serve over the brown rice. Garnish with the remaining green onions and sesame seeds.

Mirin is a sweet rice wine. Tamari is similar to but richer than soy sauce. Both are available in Asian food sections of most grocery stores.
