Hot ‘n’ Sour Stir-fry

This kale dish is based on a favorite Hot n’ Sour Soup from a Seattle restaurant. Tonight we skip the soup part and add more vegetables, specifically kale. This cozy comfort-food version of stir-fry combines hot, savory, sweet and sour flavors with lots of texture.

As this is referred to as a Hot’n’ Sour dish, it uses cayenne pepper. The recipe calls for 1/8 tsp. to 1/4 tsp. cayenne. If you have a low tolerance for hot foods use 1/8 tsp!
