Cafe Manna's Root Vegetable Stir-Fry

Yet another recipe that Jim found in the local paper. This one was interesting. I think it would have been better had some shrimp or chicken been added to it, but the sauce was quite tasty!

1 tbsp. diced ginger
1 green onion
1/4 bunch cilantro
juice of 1/2 orange
1-2 tbsp. parsley
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
1-1/2 tbsp. sesame oil
1/4 cup mirin wine
1 tbsp. olive oil
3/4 cup julienned carrots
3/4 cup julienned parsnips
3.4 cup julienned Daikon radish
3/4 cup julienned yellow beet (couldn't find this so left it out)
3/4 cup julienned celery root
3/4 cup julienned turnip
hot cooked jasmine or basmati rice (we just used regular old white rice)

To prepare the sauce, in a blender (food processor), place the ginger, green onion, cilantro, orange juice, parsley, garlic, sesame oil and mirin and puree until smooth.

In a saute pan, heat the oil over high heat. Add the carrots, parsnips, Daikon radish, yellow beet, celery root and turnip and quickly saute a minute or two, keeping vegetables moving so they don't burn. Add sauce, toss and cook another 2 minutes, keepeing vegetables moving, until vegetables are crisp-tender. Serve with rice.
