Stir-Fry Root Wraps


Hoisin, often called Chinese ketchup, is available in a wide variety of brands. All contain sugar; however, brands that list the following ingredients are likely to have a more complex, authentic flavor: fermented soybeans, rice vinegar, chili and sesame oil.

  • 8Servings


  • Eight 6-inch flour tortillas
  • 2 Tbs. tamari
  • 2 Tbs. sherry or vegetable broth
  • 1 Tbs. water
  • 1 tsp. brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tsp. canola oil
  • 1 Tbs. peeled, grated fresh gingerroot
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 3 carrots, peeled, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/8-inch-thick slices (2 1/4 cups)
  • 2 small parsley roots, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/8-inch-thick slices (1 cup)
  • 6 daikon, peeled, halved lengthwise, cut into 1/8-inch-thick slices (2 cups)
  • 6 medium red radishes, halved and cut into 1/8-inch-thick slices (3/4 cup)
  • 1 bunch green onions, trimmed well, cut into 2-inch lengths and julienned
  • 1 1/2 cups broccoli sprouts


In large skillet over medium-high heat, heat tortillas on each side briefly until warmed and soft. Wrap in clean towel, stacked, until ready to fill.

In small bowl, combine tamari, sherry or vegetable broth, water and brown sugar. Stir to dissolve sugar. Set aside.

In large wok or cast iron skillet, heat oil over high heat. Add ginger and garlic and stir-fry about 1 minute. Add carrots and parsley roots and stir-fry 5 minutes. Add daikon and stir-fry 2 minutes. Add radishes and green onions and stir-fry another 2 minutes.

Add reserved tamari mixture. Cook, stirring and turning ingredients until liquid is almost evaporated. Add broccoli sprouts and cook just to heat through, about 1 minute. Remove from heat.

Divide ingredients into 8 portions. Spread each tortilla with hoisin sauce (about 2 teaspoons). Spoon some stir-fried vegetables onto tortilla and roll up.
