Seasonal favorites with an Asian twist

"I wanted to create a seasonal stir-fry with two of my favorite crisp and crunchy vegetables—Brussels sprouts and Jerusalem artichokes. The latter balance the root and solar plexus chakra and contain the prebiotic inulin that can help support probiotics in the body for better digestion and all-round good health. In the stir-fry, they add a welcome texture.”
