Simple; spicy vegetable stir fry

Posted by on December 3, 2012 at 4:39 am.

I’ve always loved making stir fry, the meal is prepared quickly, and I tend to toss whatever fresh produce is available.

My daughter thought this was great, she said she wished I added more greens.

 

Since we had cauliflower, turnips, still in the garden, those were the main ingredients in this dish. And to that I added red pepper, onions, and garlic. Pepper and onion season have ended in our one acre garden. I added a dash or two of olive oil to the skillet, tossed in yellow onions, and then stirred in the vegetables. I’m sure there are other ingredients I’m missing…

After a few minutes, I added a spicy sauce to the dish, let simmer for a few moments, then I served the meal. The spicy sauce came about several years ago.ย  IT was an attempt to recreate this lovely (and incredibly hot) shrimp paste sauce that I used in my pre-veggie days; so that was in the 1990s.ย  And I think I did a great job of replicating it, since it has all the flavor (and heat) of the shrimp paste I adored.

This simple dish turned out very well, and it didn’t last too long since my daughter had a few helpings, one at mealtime, and the next the following day. And here I thought I would have leftovers that lasted a few days! Sighs, not this time! ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

In other news…

I have so many good things to say about the interchangeable Hiya Hiyaย  sharp needles that arrived this past Saturday. I will say that I like them more than my Knit Picks Options needles, but my Hiya Hiya review will be saved for another post. ๐Ÿ˜‰
