Stir-Fry Mixed Vegetables


I’m starting off my week with a simple stir-fry mixed vegetables dish. Here, I have cauliflower, bell peppers, carrot, and some snow peas. As usual you can always stir fry with your favorite combination of vegetables. This dish goes very well with steamed rice.


Stir-Fry Mixed Vegetables

Ingredients

250 g Cauliflower, break into smaller florets and blanched
1/2 Green Bell Pepper, sliced
1/2 Red Bell Pepper, sliced
1 Small Carrot, peeled and sliced
50 g Snow Peas
1/2 Small Yellow Onion, sliced
1 Red Chili, sliced
2 Cloves Garlic, chopped
1 1/2 Tbsp Peanut Oil
Sea Salt to taste

Sauce
1 Tbsp Oyster Sauce
1 tsp Soy Sauce
1 tsp Corn Flour
8 Tbsp Water or Chicken Stock
2 - 3 Dash of White Pepper

Method

Heat the oil in a wok and cook the garlic on low heat. Remove the garlic when they are fragrant and golden in color.

Turn the heat on high. Toss in all the vegetables and garlic. Stir-fry for about 2 minutes and add in the sauce. Bring it to a quick boil and season with sea salt. The sauce should be thickened and the vegetables cooked but still firm. Serve immediately.

  2. I prefer vegetables to fruit and this just makes my mouth water especially because I had fruit salad for lunch.

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite! It's made from scratch using raw ingredients, such as Medjool dates, cashew, almond, cocoa, and coconut. You will be amazed with the end result. Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well. Have a great weekend.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
