Big Stir-fry

We make stir fry pretty often in my house, and it’s one of the cheapest meals to make, while making enough for 4 plus leftovers. It doesn’t take too long and it’s really wonderfully filling.

Ingredients:

-already cooked rice (or other grains, your choice. we do about 2 cups for one stirfry. we’ve also done noodles!)

-meat or protein of choice (we’ve done chicken, beef, and pork; you could do tofu or vegetarian meat, eggs, or omit this entirely and just have vegetables)

-frozen vegetables (we do one bag of stir fry mix, and one of succotash-type veggies. keep them frozen. fresh veg would be ok but frozen is easier.)

-sauce of choice (the last one we did was hoisin, stir-fry sauce, and soy sauce, but anything would work!)

-high smoke-point oil (such as peanut, soybean, grapeseed, and refined sesame)

Cooking wares:

-the pan that can go the hottest in your house (for us it’s a big cast iron skillet. for you it could be a wok or something else)

-a bowl for keeping the protein in after its cooked

Instructions:

1. if your rice isn’t already cooked, cook it. It can be any rice, instant would be just fine if you’re low-spoons or you haven’t mastered cooking rice (like me)

2. add the oil to your pan. set to medium high heat.

As it’s warming, cut your protein up. I’m never sure when meat cooks, so I cut the pieces sort of small so they cook fast. 

Once the oil’s warm, put in the protein and let it cook. once it starts to brown on the outside (it will brown sort of quickly), add your sauce (about 1/3 of the total sauce).

if the sauce sticks to the bottom of your pan don’t worry. it’ll make everything tastier because the veggies, which have water in them, will deglaze the pan. just keep the protein moving as best as you can.

3. remove the protein once it’s fully cooked.

4. add the frozen veggies, heat until they’re not frozen. Once they’re not frozen, add the rest of the sauce.

5. add the protein back in, along with the rice. Stir until everything’s coated in the sauce and everything is warm.

Shabam, you’re done!

You could add green onions, peanuts, or whatever you like as a garnish too. You could crack an egg on top. Sriracha and other spices go well if you like something spicy, but you can also make it very simple and mild by adding not too much sauce. There are so many ways to make this once you know the basic way to do it. 

Good luck stir-frying!

anonymous asked:

Do you have any rice noodle recipes?

Yeah! Try these:

For more Asian recipes, try searching up (in our new search bar!!) dishes traditionally served with rice noodles, such as pad thai or pho, or even just noodles. For Western-style dishes, rice noodles can substitute for flatter/thinner pastas such as angel hair, spaghettini, linguine, or spaghetti.

Hella awesome vegetarian/vegan stir fry!*

Ingredients (amounts vary, depending on how hungry you are):

  • 2-3 oz soba noodles (dry)
  • 4-8 oz extra firm tofu or mock duck
  • 1 can or 2 cups baby corn
  • Tons of broccoli
  • 1 oz whole or sliced almonds or peanuts
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp lime juice or rice vinegar
  • Peanut butter (to taste)
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger

To make:

  1. Cook your soba noodles. Set them aside to cool.
  2. Chop your veggies, protein, and nuts.
  3. In a small bowl, mix 1 tbsp soy sauce, lime juice, ginger and garlic. Add ½ cup of water and stir thoroughly.
  4. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1-2 tsp of sesame oil on medium high. Lightly fry your choice of protein until slightly browned.
  5. Add your vegetables and nuts to the skillet, and pour the pre-mixed sauce over the top of everything. Cover the pan and let it steam for 3-5 minutes.
  6. In a small bowl, mix peanut butter, 1 tbsp soy sauce and honey. Add a drizzle of water and blend until smooth. Pour it over the noodles and mix together.
  7. Check your skillet! If the broccoli is at least partially well-steamed, remove the cover to let the steam out.
  8. Turn the stir-fry in the skillet with a spatula to cook it evenly. With the heat on high, let it sizzle until it is browned to your taste.
  9. Add to noodles and enjoy!

*Please note: This is a vegetarian OR vegan dish depending on what type of carb or protein you choose. Some fake meats can still contain small amounts of animal product, and some types of soba noodles are made with egg. For vegans, I advise sticking with rice/rice noodles and tofu/seitan.

Peanut Sauce for Cheap, Tired Assholes

Hey listen up this is one of my top favorite food adulterants for when you are just so done with everything but still want to put sustenance into your face that doesn’t taste like cardboard. 

So. Get a bowl. In said bowl place

  • two big spoonfuls of creamy peanut butter
  • A generous splash of sweet vinegar (apple cider for preference, but red/white wine or rice wine will also work. So will balsamic.)
  • Slightly less generous but still generous splash of soy sauce
  • Little bit of vegetable oil of some variety (I use olive oil, because it’s usually the bottle that’s open.)
  • Spicy shit (optional)

Put bowl of stuff in microwave and zap until peanut butter is melty. Mix together. If your sauce is too thick (this is totally subjective and up to personal taste), splash a little water in and mix until it’s however runny you want. 

WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH IT:

  • Toss with ramen noodles (and ramen accessories like frozen mixed veggies, meats, eggs, etc. I’ve had them all with this sauce and they’re all good). 
  • Put on cooked meat (chicken titty is v. nice, so is ground pork fried in little nuggets.)
  • Use a dipping sauce for things (frozen, reheated meatballs, vegetables, dry chunks of ramen, etc.)
  • Use as a sauce for sweet-and-sour chicken (takeout or frozen) congrats you have just made yourself peanut butter chicken, the tastiest of American-Chinese food
  • Put on a burger or some shit (nice nice)
  • Whatever tf you want, congratulations you have just added a generous fuckload of protein to whatever food item you have chosen. 

If you don’t have vinegar to hand you can leave it out and just add more water instead but tbh it’s about 10000x better with a little vinegar. Go get a little bottle of apple cider vinegar, it’s good in like everything. 

anonymous asked:

Do you have any healthy pancakes recipes or any healthy meal ideas for someone who doesn't like too much salad?

I DO I DO I DO

healthy protein pancakes-
20g oats
150ml unsweetened almond milk
2 eggs
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder

or without the protein powder
30g oats
100ml unsweetened almond milk
2 eggs
and for additional protein which is optional 1 tbs of Greek yogurt

whisk all ingredients together and cook in pan with a little butter, add dark chocolate or vanilla essence for more flavour and top with maple syrup and fruit, they will not disappoint!

As for other recipes, my favourites are:

- egg fried rice with chicken, broccoli and green beans (griddle chicken, cook rice and veg, whisk egg then in a pan add the rice and stir in the egg until it cooks, no oil or butter needed, add chicken and veg and some salt and lemon for flavour)

- two egg omelette with ham/bacon, mush rooms, spinach and broccoli.

- grilled chicken with sweet potato fries and broccoli (for fried chop up sweet potato and toss in a little oil and cook in over for 20-30 minutes)

- whole wheat noodle stir fry with chicken, broccoli, green beans/ sweet corn and peppers and cashew nuts/peanuts (griddle chicken in pieces, cook noodles in water and steam vegetables, and noodles chicken and veg to pan and stir until heated, add soy sauce for more fallout)

- bulgar wheat with prawns and broccoli

- couscous with peppers and ham

- rice and tuna mixed with raw spinach, lettuce, cabbage, cucumber and nuts.

- baked potato with tuna and cucumber

- whole wheat pasta with tuna, peppers, cucumber and peanuts.

- healthy hash browns (cook quinoa, grate potatoes, cook onion, mix potatoes in a bowl with one egg and quinoa then fry mixture in a little bit of butter) I have the full recipe under tagged/intake but I’m on my phone at the moment!

- whole wheat wrap with humous, quinoa, ham, peppers and cucumber.

- whole wheat pitta bread with bacon, avocado, humous and tomatoes.

- whole grain rice cakes with humous, ham and tomatoes.

- grilled gammon, baked potato and roasted sweet potatoes, peppers, aubergines and courgette.

- quinoa mixed with wild rice, chicken and vegetables.

Hope this helps, there is more to life than just salads!

Rumah Sate at the Ketchup Food Community (Baguio City, Benguet)

For one of our lunches, we headed to the Ketchup Food Community which housed a couple of restaurants. Given the crazy crowd of people that were there, we ended up at Rumah Sate which is an Indonesian-Malaysian restaurant. And it did not disappoint! For starters, we had the Mie Goreng which was stir-fried noodles that had a nice peanut-flavored sauce mixed with seafood, meat and vegetables (topped with lime juice). We then shared this humongous Group Sate which had a large cone of rice, skewers of chicken satay, grilled chicken, and grilled pork belly, plus a salad of fresh cucumbers, oranges, tomatoes, and vinegar with green chilies. Whew!!!
