Serves 2

Ingredients for All Vegetable Spicy Stir Fry :

  • 3 cloves Garlic- finely chopped
  • 1 fresh chilli- finely chopped (depending upon the heat of the chilli – don’t use whole scotch bonnet!!)
  • 1 inch of ginger- finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce or 1 table spoon soy sauce
  • 1 heaped teaspoon veg stock – or 1 cube
  • 1 onion- sliced- fairly chunky
  • 2 carrots-finely sliced
  • 6-8 mushrooms
  • 1 leek
  • 1 pepper- I prefer red or yellow as sweeter!
  • 4 stems asparagus- in 2 inch long pieces
  • Green veg – Pak choy, swiss chard, spinach, broccoli- big handful of each (or the ones you have)
  • Any other vegetable that wanders past!

Method for All Vegetable Spicy Stir Fry:

  1. Rip the leaves into big chunks, leave the pak choy leaves whole if small and slice if big, try to get slices the same size for even cooking!
  2. Works best in a wok, or the biggest frying pan you have (I sometimes use my paella dish!)
  3. Ensure all vegetables are ready chopped before you start cooking as will only take 5-10 mins to cook!
  4. Start the garlic, chilli, ginger off in ½ pint water on a medium heat, once they are bubbling add the stock, carrots and onions.
  5. Cook until the carrots are starting to soften a little, then add leeks, mushrooms, asparagus, broccoli, peppers and any other ‘semi hard’ vegetables – eg courgettes.
  6. Once back up to heat add all the soft greens, and the oyster/soy sauce and turn up the heat and stir like mad! You may need to add a bit more water to help the greens to start wilting.  I aim to steam most of the vegetables and avoid using oil unless it is a ‘sticky pan’.
  7. It’s ready when the greens are wilting, but the firm vegetables still have a little crunch left!

Use whatever vegetables you have that will hold its shape – have found butternut squash really doesn’t work!

I try to get a mixture of veg that look good together – and that the colours balance nicely! If you want more ‘bulk’ you can add noodles or rice but I don’t normally.

If you are not keen on spicy food just leave out the chilli and ginger, tastes  just as good.

And the really good news is, if you are following a diet (eg slimming world) the only items that are restricted are the oyster sauce and the stock- so is virtually a free meal!
