Vegetarian Kinpira - Video Recipe

I received many requests for Japanese vegetarian foods, so here is the one!
I made my popular recipe which I have already received 300 photo reports saying it was good, so I hope you like it ;)

Kinpira is mostly seasoned with soy sauce, mirin (sweet sake), and sugar so it is pretty sweet, but instead of using sugar, I used ketchup, so my recipe is tasty ;) Also, I didn't use gobo (burdock root) but commonly available vegetables (such as potato, onion, and green pepper), so I hope you can try it out!!!

BTW, soy sauce is made by fermenting soya beans, so it is a vegetarian seasoning :D

Vegetarian Kinpira

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 10min
Number of servings: 2

150g (5.3oz.) potato
50g (1.8oz.) onion
50g (1.8oz.) carrot
35g (1.2oz.) green pepper
* 2 tbsp. ketchup
* 1/2 tbsp. soy sauce
* 1/2 tbsp. sake
* a pinch of sugar
2 tsp. sesame oil

1. Cut potato green pepper and carrot into short and thin strips. Slice the onion.
2. Heat sesame oil in a frying pan, and fry onion until fragrant. Add potato and carrot, and stir-fry until browned (2 minutes). Add green pepper and stir-fry for 30 seconds.
3. Add A in the pan and stir-fry until the seasonings blend.


It goes great with white rice!!!

BTW, did any of you realized that I misspelled the title "Kimpira" in my video... I couldn't re-upload the video once it's published to everyone, so I need to be careful X(
