MCLV Mange: Stirfry

A stirfry is a quick and easy way to get an excellent dose of veggies. Not only can you use up whatever is in your fridge or your latest farmers market haul, you can also put it over whatever you’re in the mood for. Brown rice, grains, lentils, or you can give quinoa a try like I did below.

Stirfry Vegan Gluten-Free Paleo San Francisco Food Fitness Lifestyle Blogger Recipe

Ingredients:

  • Whatever you want! Here I’m eating cabbage, peppers, carrots, celery, and zucchini with a heart dose of onion and garlic

Directions:

  • Heat a pan with oil – I prefer coconut for higher temperature endeavors like this one
  • Add onions and garlic first, heat until they start to sizzle
  • Sautee the rest of your veggies, plus protein if you’d like, on medium heat for ~15 minutes or until you achieve the desired texture. I like my veggies with a little crunch so I don’t overcook.
  • Pour over rice, quinoa, or even into a pita, and enjoy!

MCLV Mange: Spicy Peanut Stirfry

After reading Hungry Hungry Hippie’s Simple Vegan Stirfry post I decided to try my hand at a similar, oh-so-simple dish. Something easy that can be thrown together with ingredients that are usually on hand and is quick enough for an after-work meal when you come home from the office starving.

Rather than peanut flour and soy sauce I used powdered peanut butter and Bragg’s Liquid Amino Acids as the flavor base of the dish. I was in a hurry {read: starving} so I sautéed some diced tofu in Bragg’s Amino Acids and powdered peanut butter until it was browned and cooked all the way through.

After the tofu was done I added a couple of cups of frozen broccoli to the pan. Et voila.

I’m definitely going to try this combination again and I’ll be sure to add some additional veggies – This is the perfect recipe to utilize that bag of veggies that has been forgotten in the back of your freezer.

This is a quick, easy, healthy recipe that’s high in nutrients and protein. In fact, this is a perfect lunchtime meal that you could make in a large batch on a Sunday and reheat for lunch during the week. Flavorful and filling but light enough that you don’t go into a food coma at your desk after lunch. 🙂
