It’s one of those days when cooking is a chore, yet the hungry monsters in the belly need to be fed.
One of the simplest and healthy meals to make is a stir-fry, especially a vegetarian one.
So get your easy-to-cook vegetables out, and whip up this for the monsters (not the Lady Gaga kind).
What you need:
- A Wok – if not, a deep pan will do, or a non-stick pot.
- Cooking oil
- Vegetables – snap peas, sweet peas, carrots, red and yellow bell peppers, cabbage, cucumber, green onions, fresh ginger, garlic.
- Rice – preferably pre-cooked.
- Salt to taste
How to cook:
- Heat up the wok on gentle heat, and drop about 3 tablespoons of oil in it.
- Add the ingredients one by one, starting with the onion, then the carrots, then the rest. I put in the cabbage last as it cooks easy. Add in the salt, and keep stirring gently until the vegetables are cooked, but still crispy.
- Add the rice onto the mix and keep stirring for about five minutes.
Voila! Food is served!
Serve while still hot.
- You can add eggs to the mix – Fry up 2 or 3 eggs, cut them up in strips, and toss into the mix
- Use brightly coloured vegetables to make the food look delicious
- You can add soy sauce to the mix, just don’t overdo it. And if you add soy, be careful not to over-salt the food.
- A good wok might be hard to find, but it’s a great investment. If all else fails, use a regular sufuria, just be careful not to overcook the vegetables.
