Peanut Stir Fry

Hello, Beans!

Well, I say morning, it’s nearly afternoon as I’m writing this. A late start this morning despite being awake normal time doing my workout. Oh well. It’s a Sunday so it’s allowed. Today I have a recipe I’ve been working on for a Stir Fry. It’s a little lazy because I use a packet stir fry mix. This means that it’s great for a quick meal though! A win for me. Hope you enjoy!

Note – I haven’t placed this through the CRON-O-Meter but I did work out that following this recipe the calories are 523.

Ingredients

One packet of stir fry mix – I used Waitrose ribbon stir fry mix.
70g Mushrooms
1/2 Pepper
1 Tin unsalted Sweetcorn
2 Cups spinach
2Tbsp Tahini
1Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Small handfuls of cashews
60g Rice noodles
1Tbsp Coriander
1Tbsp Garlic powder or 1 Garlic Clove
1Tbsp Ginger
1Tbsp Parsley
1Tsp Chilli flakes or Chilli powder
1Tsp Tumeric
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Pepper & salt

Soy Sauce (optional) I don’t bother. If you want to include it I would sprinkle it on the noodles before popping them in the pan with the rest of the stuff.

Method

Firstly, measure out your noodles. Boil some water and put them on a light simmer. Rice noodles don’t take long to cook.

Chop up your mushrooms into either small pieces or slices and fry them on a medium to high heat for 5 minutes in a large frying pan with the olive oil.Β Once your mushrooms are softened, turn to a medium heat and add the stir fry mix and sweetcorn. Fry for another 5 minutes.

At this point add the all your other ingredients other than the spinach, tahini and cashews. All of your herbs, spices and lemon juice. Give it a good mix.

Once your noodles are done, drain and rinse them before adding to the pan. Give it another good mix and then add your Tahini and spinach. Give it a good mix and lower the heat.

Last step. Add some of your cashews to the pan before giving it a final stir and serving it up. Once served up add some cashews on top and some coriander.

A delicious peanut stir-fry. Β This is a very filling meal and pretty darn healthy as well. Stir fries are a good go-to meal because they are quick and easy and a good way to fill up on veg. The combinations for stir fry and endless so have fun with it and make it your own. The great thing about stir-fries as well is that it’s common to not have meat in them so it’s good for none vegans and vegans alike.
