A plate of Vietnamese Stir-fried Vegetables with Fish Sauce (Rau Xao) is a great accompaniment to any Southeast Asian meal, which usually consists of Vietnamese soup, a main course, some rice and a plate of stir fried vegetables.
Add some meat or seafood to the vegetables and Vietnamese Stir-fried Vegetables with Fish Sauce Recipe (Rau Xào) becomes a complete meal when served with some rice – easy to prepare and perfect for days when work takes a toll. If you are a vegetarian, omit the fish sauce and add some tofu instead of meat.
When blanching, leave the vegetables in the boiling water just long enough to soften slightly, then place in the cold or ice water immediately to ensure a crisp texture. Do not overcook.
