Tuesday Tasters...Sweet and Spicy Stir-fry.(Recipe)


My Hubby loves stir fry...and I don't mind making them as they are quick, simple, and nutritious so here's one we enjoyed this week.

meat, tomatoes, mushrooms garlic and chilli all go into the wok with some olive oil
 



First the meat, tomatoes, mushrooms garlic and chilli all go into the wok with some olive oil and fry off nicely until the meet is cooked through.
mange-tout and baby-corn and par boil
  


Whilst that is going on I chop the mange-tout and baby-corn and par boil it for a while in a saucepan before adding it to the wok.
 let it fry for a further 5 minutes to let the flavours blend.


Once softened I then add the vegetables to the wok. This is the point I decide what else to add to flavour it and this time I used some honey, cayenne pepper and a dash of English mustard then let it fry for a further 5 minutes to let the flavours blend.
bean-sprouts just 50 penceLastly I add the bean-sprouts, I like these to be nice and crunchy so they are literlly tossed in until they are warmed through. I often grow my own in my sprouter but these were bought for just 50 pence in Morrisons.

  2. Looks great (apart from the chicken, but I just substitute Quorn!). We also eat a lot of stir fries, as they are so quick and yet healthy. Never tried honey in it before, so will give that a go x

  6. Oh Tanya,
    That looks so good! Maybe it's a sign that I am getting better. I haven't eaten solid foods for more than a week now.
    Maybe I should try something stir fry? Or a simplified version.

    Best wishes,
    Anna
