When I say chicken stir fry I mean chicken and vegetable. And probably mostly vegetable. Because I really do see stir fry as a chance to eat as many delicious vegetables as possible. Using curry paste as the base of a sauce for a stir fry is so fantastic as it gets rid of so much of the prep time and delivers big on flavour!
My new thing is using curry pastes and a little stock or coconut cream to create the flavour and sauce. It’s so quick and easy and packs a huge flavour punch! You can make your own paste and freeze in portions or keep in the fridge if you plan on using it quickly, or just buy one. So many options to make your life tasty, healthy and easy.
You all know that cauliflower is one of my favourite vegetables. It’s just so adaptable and tastes so different when cooked in different ways. I have love it since cauliflower cheese was my favourite ever vegetable dish as a kid and I don’t think I will ever get over it. So this week I’ve reworked my favourite chicken Teriyaki bowls… and made them vegetarian because it’s a good idea to eat more plants!
Well hello there you spicy-flavour-texture-bomb-colourful bowl of goodness you. This is not my first vegetarian bibimbap. It’s more of a green and pink affair than the last one and I’m totally into the colour combo. And the flavours. Everything on this is yelling at you but when you get them all together they harmonise.
Guys! Remember kung pao chicken? It’s like a Chinese takeaway favourite, and I’ve usually had it with chicken. But you know I’m always trying to find ways to eat less meat (love it, but I wanna eat the veg for my body’s sake and save the world – realistic goals are my thing), and thus there’s no chicken in this. I replaced it with… mushrooms! And yum! And added noodles cos I love them.
I love fried rice. In all its varieties, including nasi gorneg. But then I was like, how good would these flavours be on rice noodles? Turns out, very good.
I live in a household of two. Two people can’t eat a whole roast chicken in one sitting. I mean, we have friends over frequently but sometimes I want a roast and when there is only two of you you’re going to have leftovers. And leftovers are what these noodles are all about. Leftovers and flavour! Because there’s no point in trying not to waste things if it’s not going to taste good.
