Stir it Up!

A wok and a few fresh ingredients are all you need to make quick, healthy and super-tasty meals.

Radish in Black Vinegar with Crabmeat and Black Sesame Seeds


  • 1 tsp. canola oil
  • 10 oz. radish leaves
  • 1 ¾ cup radishes, cut into ¼-in. slices
  • 1 Tbs. Chinkiang black rice vinegar or balsamic vinegar
  • Pinch of superfine sugar
  • 7 oz. fresh white crabmeat
  • 1 Tbs. black sesame seeds, to garnish
  • Pinch of dried chili flakes, to garnish


  1. Heat a wok over high heat until smoking and add the canola oil, then add the radish leaves and sliced radishes. Toss for 10 seconds, then drizzle 2 tablespoons cold water around the edge of the wok to create some steam to help cook the radishes. Season immediately with the vinegar and sugar and toss through.
  2. Spoon the radish onto serving plates, then top with the fresh crabmeat and garnish with the sesame seeds and chili flakes.

Tip: You can stir-fry any kind of protein- I recommend salmon because it supplies your body with healthy Omega-3. – Robert Galarowicz, clinical nutritionist, Wood-Ridge
