I don't know what to call this meal.


nativeinformant said she liked my cooking posts, so I hope everybody appreciates this sloppy meal I made in the middle of the night. I near-caramelized some garlic and carrots, then added huge button mushrooms, a red chili, and a little minced onion. I also added a little fresh orange juice, a little orange zest, a little Kikkoman, and a little coriander powder. I was trying for a "kung pao" concept, and it worked except for the lack of nuts. If it weren't the middle of the night, I'd have picked up some cashews or peanuts. And maybe garnished it with fresh cilantro. I ate this creation, soft taco style, on rotis (heated from frozen) and labneh. If you haven't had labneh, it's an Arabic or Turkish yogurt which has the texture of sour cream but tastes more like Philadelphia.

So there you have it. A Chinese-inspired stir fry, eaten with Arabic yogurt on Indian bread, assembled like a tostada or soft taco. Funny picture, but it tasted really good!
