I'm going to a dinner party tonight, and I've been assigned a "vegetable." I'm going to bring over my wok and outdoor rig and stir fry some things on their patio (as to not take up precious kitchen space).
Since the main course is ham, I don't want to get too crazy with the asian flavors. I think that I'm going to toss the vegetables in a very light peanut and soy sauce - not enought to overpower the other dishes.
My idea is to bring over blanched asparagus, blanched chinese broccoli, thin carrots, red bell pepper, mushrooms, and possible some good water chestnut. See any problems with that? I'm trying to decised if I should toss it with fresh kaffir lime leaf or thai basil, or what?
