Well, stir-fries are not only quick and easy but also pretty healthy and nutritious.

1/2 a red bell pepper
1/2 an onion
2 cloves garlic
1 cup/340g Chicken-style pieces
(e.g. Quorn or Supermarket own brand)
1/2 mixed vegetable stir-fry pack
(a cheat, but a great time-saver!)
1/2 cup/170g edamame beans
1 tbsp. coconut oil
Himalayan salt flakes (to taste)
Brown sugar (optional, to taste)
Soy sauce (to taste)
Chilli pieces (to taste – I use 2 tsps.)

Method:

  1. Finely chop garlic, onions and peppers
  2. Heat the oil in a wok/stir-fry pan
  3. Stir-fry the onions for a minute/until softened
  4. Add the garlic and stir-fry for a further minute
  5. Stir-in the chicken-style pieces and splash with soy sauce
  6. Add the remaining vegetables to the wok and stir-fry for 5-10 minutes (vary according to how crispy you like your veg.). Obviously the shorter the time, the more nutrients in your veg.!
  7. Add the chilli pieces, sugar, salt and more Soy sauce if required and stir.
  8. You’re done! Serve up with rice, noodles or another base of your choice.
