- Heat the peanut oil in a wok or large saute pan.
- When the oil is hot, add the chopped vegetables and the sambal oelek. Stir fry the vegetables for 5-6 minutes, adding the broth toward the end of the cooking time to keep the vegetables moist.

- Pour the sauce mixture over the stir fry, then the cornstarch mixture.
- Stir well, then add most of the basil. Let it wilt.
- Remove the pan from heat and serve.
