I think I finally perfected my stir fry. I have never been a huge fan because the taste of stir fry was never enough. Do you think so too? Like always you can add whatever vegetables you want. Stir fry is a great way to use those veggies you didn’t get to eat and are going to go bad in your fridge.
I have fallen in love with the vegetable broth cubes. I get them at my local co-op https://shopnaturalliving.com/index.html but if you’re not local than you can purchase these on amazon. https://www.amazon.com/s?k=chick%27n+cubes&ref=nb_sb_noss_2 . These things are awesome to pop in whatever you’re cooking. Now DON’T salt your food after you use this. It has a ton of salt already and I forget I put these in and I ruin my food by over salting. If it is too much salt for you then you can just cut it in half! These are great for soup when you’re craving ramen. They are also a time saver when you don’t have time to make broth.
1/2 Purple cabbage
1 White onion
1/2 Pound green beans
7-10 Okra pieces
1 Vegetable cube (If you don’t have these on hand and you want to make stir fry then use veggie broth, 1/2 cup-1 cup depending how saucy you want it)
1 cup water
3-4 tablespoons of Coconut Aminos (this is a soy free option for soy sauce. If soy sauce doesn’t bother you then go on with your soy sauce!)
1 teaspoon sesame oil
4 garlic cloves
1 tablespoon of safflower oil or olive oil
- Chop your onion and turn your heat on medium heat. Saute for a few minutes until translucent.
- Add your chopped carrots, green beans and whatever other hardy vegetables you want. Let cook for a few minutes. You don’t want to add your leafy greens until the end because they will get soggy and weird.
- Add your chopped garlic. I have been adding my garlic later in the cooking process lately and it has been doing wonders for taste and the healing elements of garlic are stronger.
- Now put in your bok choy, okra, and purple cabbage.
- Once everything is mixed in and sauted, add the vegetable cube and a cup of water. Add your coconut aminos and the sesame oil. Let this cook for about 3-5 minutes. Stir fry is meant to be quick. If you like your vegetables mushy you can cook them for as long as you want but if you still want a little crunch then cook them for a shorter amount of time.
- You can add rice, noodles, or quinoa to this and there you go. Enjoy!
