Simple Stir-Fry

Stir-Fry is incredibly easy, affordable, healthy and quick to make, especially if you own a wok (you can also use a big frying pan), and almost any vegetable can be 'thrown' into the mixture!

Can be eaten on its own or with potato, rice, quinoa, or any other grain.

Basic Ingredients:
  • Toasted Sesame Oil
  • Bragg (Liquid Aminos - in Wholefoods and many other supermarkets)
  • Shredded cabbage
  • Shredded carrots
  • Sliced or chopped zucchini
  • Chopped celery

Other great veggies to add: Bean sprouts, sweet peas, corn, red pepper, bokchoy, cauliflower, broccoli...

Put all the vegetables in the wok, cook on medium, and mix veggies around. Pour a T-spoon or 2 of the Toasted Sesame Oil all around, and 2 or 3 Tablespoons of Bragg (or other healthy soy sauce-type ingredient), add garlic, pepper, ginger (fresh or powder), and any spices you like. Stir every once in a while. Cooks in about 15-20 minutes. Try not to overcook so the vegetables retain their texture, flavor, and as many vitamins as possible.


If you want to eat slower and savor each bite, use chopsticks!
