Whilst I’m not a vegetarian, I don’t feel the need to eat meat with every meal. Recently, I’ve been trying to eat less meat and only have it with one meal a day.
Last night was one of those nights where I spontaneously decided to use up whatever was left in the fridge, and the result was delicious! I thought I’d share the recipe for you, so here’s my simple vegetable stir fry:
Ingredients (Serves 2)
- 1 pak choi
- 1 red pepper
- 1/2 red onion
- 4-6 broccoli heads
- 3-4 Shiitake mushrooms
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 250g fried rice (even though my packet is microwaveable I just added it straight into the wok instead)
- Shaoxing rice wine/Fish sauce (I used both!), Sunflower oil
1. Add a tablespoon of sunflower oil to a large wok.
2. Chop the garlic and onion, then fry for a minute.
3. Throw in the broccoli and fry for a few minutes.
4. Add in the red pepper and shiitake mushrooms, then sprinkle with fish sauce.
5. Add the pak choi, drop in a dash of Shaoxing wine, and mix everything together.
6. Lastly, add in the egg-fried rice, and using two spoons, mix all of the ingredients together until everything is fully cooked.
And serve! It’s really that simple. I also added in some reduced-salt soy sauce too. Because of all the different flavours and ingredients, I didn’t really notice that there wasn’t any meat included. Besides, there are many benefits to reducing the amount of meat from your diet; it cuts down on saturated fats, gives you a lower cholesterol, reduces the risk of cancer and helps you to lose weight.
