1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
4 cups carrots, sliced
3 shallots, sliced into thick rings
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 ½ teaspoon fresh ginger, peeled and minced
½ jalapeno, stemmed, seeded and minced
½ teaspoon Chinese Five Spice
1 teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 green onions, thinly sliced
Chef’s notes: If Chinese Five Spice is not available, you can simply leave it out. However, if you can find this seasoning, it adds a flavorful touch to the dish. To peel ginger quickly and safely use the edge of a small spoon and scrape the peel away from the ginger root to remove all the skin before chopping.
