Quick Vegetable Stir Fry

This cute little cabbage was just crying out to be stir-fried.....A quick easy supper, just a bit of chopping....yum

For two People:

  • Half a small cabbage shredded
  • Three to four chopped scallions/spring onions
  • One each small red, green and yellow peppers sliced into thin strips
  • Two handfuls of sliced mushrooms
  • One or two cloves of garlic finely chopped
  • A small piece of root ginger, grated or finely chopped
  • Nam Pla fish sauce or soy sauce/tamari
  • Rapeseed oil for frying
  • Sesame or sunflower seeds
  • Toasted sesame oil
  • Heat up rapeseed oil in a wok or heavy pan and add the cabbage, scallions and peppers and soften a little.
  • Add the ginger and garlic making sure it doesn't burn followed by the mushrooms.
  • Add the sauce continue cooking until the vegetables are crunchy but not raw.
  • Place on a serving dish and add sesame seeds and toasted sesame oil.
You could add strips of chicken, beef or pork if you like or fresh prawns.

NB. A time saving tip I picked up watching Nigella is when in a desperate snip spring onions with kitchen scissors...much quicker than chopping onions. Which is why I usually have some in the fridge.
