Stir-Fried Potatoes with Vinegar and Hot Peppers

Here's a fun way to make potatoes with an Asian-flavored twist!

In a small bowl, combine 3 tablespoons rice vinegar, 1 tablespoon dry sherry, 1 and 1/2 teaspoons vegan sugar (such as Wholesome Sweeteners), 4 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce, and 1/4 tsp. salt; set aside.  Note: my favorite sherry to use is the unfiltered Fino en Rama from Alvear, so I can be sure it is vegan!

Peel and julienne-cut 4 cups of potato (the pieces should be about 1 inch long).  Place in a bowl of cold water for 5 minutes, then drain and pat dry.

Heat 1 tablespoon peanut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add 1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions, 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger, 2 minced garlic cloves, and 2 thinly sliced Thai chiles; saute for 30 seconds, then add the potatoes and stir-fry for 4 minutes.

Note: Thai chiles are small, thin, red ones, and they are quite spicy.  If you prefer, you can only use one, but I decided to go for the full spicy effect and use two.

Add the soy sauce mixture and stir-fry a final minute, then divide the mixture into 4 side serving of 1 cup and 210 calories each.  This dish is best when eaten immediately.

It's another night of groceries from my trip to the store without a receipt!
