Get Your Stir Fry On!

Bon appetit!

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).

Nothing like a stir fry - easy and quick to make!

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
Cut up the vegetables in bite sizes

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.
Invest in a good wok

Voila! Food is served!

Serve while still hot.

That looks good enough to eat!

 

Tips:

  • 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.
Bon appetit!
