Recipe for a simple Vegetable Stir Fry. Healthy Vegetable Stir Fry recipe with step by step pictures and video. Easy, Simple and Healthy Stir-Fry
2 teaspoon vegetable oil
1.5 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon red chilli flakes
1 veg / chicken stock cube
1/4 cup water
600 grams veggies of your choice
1/4 teaspoon black pepper powder
2 cups bell peppers (yellow and red)
2 tablespoon green spring onions plus some for garnish
2 tablespoon white sesame seeds (roasted)
Corn starch slurry
1/2 cup water
1.5 teaspoon corn starch (flour)
Heat oil in a pan and add in the chopped spring onions (the white part only) and minced garlic. Add in the red chilli flakes. Saute for a few seconds. Add in a stock cube and saute for a few more seconds. I do not add additional salt as the stock cube itself is salty. You can adjust for the seasoning later if need be.
Add in the veggies. Add in the veggies that take a long time to cook first. Add in quarter cup of water and mix well. Cook for three minutes. You want the veggies to stay nice and crunchy. So do not cook for a really long time. The texture of vegetables is very important in a stir-fry.
Add in the second set of veggies that just cooks fast. Cover and cook for three more minutes.
Add in the black pepper powder. Mix half a cup of water with 1.5 teaspoon of corn starch (flour). Mix well and add it to the veggies. The slurry will instantly thicken and nicely coat the veggies.
Add in the bell peppers and the spring onions. I like to add the bell peppers at last so it stays crunchy. Do not cook for long. Just a minute will do. The residual heat will wilt the peppers but it will still retain the crunch.
Fantastic and super healthy vegetable stir-fry is ready. Garnish with spring onions and roasted sesame seeds. Serve with brown rice or serve as is.
