Time for a new, simple and quite delicious recipe. I'm a big lover of asian food, especially (almost) any kind of stir fry. It's a great way to get in the veggies, but also a source of protein and of course for us carb lovers, a type of grain. I love to use regular brown rice, and I always have that prepped in the fridge for the week.
With a dish like this you can mix it as you may please. Use your favorite veggies, meat (or you can have a meatless day), and a type of grain. I'm not a big fan of noodles, so I mostly go for the rice, and sometimes I even don't use rice based on the fact that it can be just as delicious without.
The secret to a wicked good stir fry is the "sauce". How and with what you choose to marinade your dish with is holy. Marinade? Yeah, sounds like I think I'm going to grill this dish up, but really guys, SAUCE IT UP!
Sauce (no artificial sweetners, all healthy):
- ½ cup soy sauce
- ¼ cup rice vinegar
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 4 tablespoons pineapple, crushed
- 2 tablespoons pineapple juice
- 2 tablespoons garlic
Whisk the first four ingredients together, afterwards add the remaining ingredients & add it to your stir fry.
Here's my go to stir fry:
- Bell pepper
- Red onion
- Chicken (I mostly use chicken or scampi, sometime I go meatless).
Start off by stirring up your veggies. I don't like using any oil for this, just because of the sauce coming in later. But you can use some olive oil or coconut oil. Afterwards set that aside and stir up your chicken. I cut mine into small cubes. Afterwards mix it up with the veggies. Add the sauce and serve it just as it is or with some rice/noodles/cauliflower rice.
Much love, N.
