Project Description

Stir fried Vegetables

Full Recipe in Details

This week’s produce update includes a farm fresh range of crispy vegetables to create a fast, healthy and beautifully stir fry. One of the things I like to do is to spice my stir fry’s up, depending on the flavours I feel like enjoying that particular night. Try a combination of chilli, pepper and curry with added egg for a Singapore style stir fry, use black bean, mushrooms and soy for a Chinese style dish and for a Thai style – add finely grated lemon grass, lime leaves and a spice combination of coriander, cumin and peppercorns (finely crushed/blended) and added to the vegetables and fried through towards the end of cooking. Of course you can also add Pork, Beef or Chicken to create a delicious meal in one. Three very different flavours to transport you all over the globe with the very same vegetables!

  • 1 bunch of fresh roughly diced local Pak Choy

  • 1 bunch of fresh roughly diced local Chinese Broccoli

  • 1 bunch of fresh locally grown Spring Onions (or 1 med red Onion)

  • 1 Red Capsicum or Red Cabbage for colour
