10 Minute Nutritious Stirfry

Hi all, I’d like to share with you a moderately easy/low spoons recipe that can be adjusted for pretty much any taste. I have been making this a lot lately, as it has lots of veggies and is very simple! 

Here goes! (By the way, this makes approx. 3 med. or 4 smaller servings. You could easily adjust this to make more!)

Tools:

-One small soup pot, depending on how many noodles or how much rice you’ll be making 

-One medium skillet 

-a wooden spoon or other stirring device (I say wooden so you won’t scratch your pots and pans!)

-A bowl to put it all in and an eating utensil!

Ingredients:

-approx. 1/3 a bag of frozen mixed vegetables (I use the kind with peas, corn, and green beans)

-1 small chopped onion OR frozen pearl or pre-chopped onions

-a spoonful of chopped garlic (can buy this jarred)

-Any kind of preferred Asian noodles (I use chow mein) or rice or any other grain, if you prefer

-Sauce of your choice (I use teriyaki, but peanut, orange, or any other Asian style sauce would be great)

-A dash of red pepper flakes

-A small amount of oil for stir frying it all

OPTIONAL: 

A bell pepper (any color, I’ve used green, you can sometimes find these frozen as well)

Fresh or frozen broccoli

Pretty much any other vegetable you think would taste yummy, I bet water chestnuts would be really good too. I’ve also topped this with avocado and it’s so good!

Directions:
All you have to do is start boiling some water for your grains/noodles, and follow the package directions. While doing this, add some oil to your skillet, and add your onions and mixed veggies once it warms up. Stir fry these for maybe 3 min, making sure to stir every so often, and then add any fresh veg you may be using (If using a thick veg like broccoli, make sure to add it at the beginning). When everything is almost finished cooking, add your garlic. Stir and make sure not to burn it! I’ve burned mine a few times, to be honest. Add your red pepper flakes. Drain your noodles, turn of your stove, toss it all in a bowl and top with your sauce. It’s a hearty meal that tastes even better the next day and can be easily re-heated at work and school. I hope this helps and adds a bit of variety to your diets! Good luck chefs :)
