When I'm trying to eat healthily, I find myself extremely reliant on the humble stir-fry. It's a great way to get loads of vegetables into you, and also manages to be full of flavour whilst scrimping on the fat content.
If you've never made a stir-fry before, it's the easiest meal. My method is...
1 - Cook some chicken. I normally toss a little bit of water into the pan to stop it sticking, rather than use oil. You can always drain this if it doesn't all evaporate. I also sometimes add a little Thai Five Spice for flavouring, and Soy Sauce.
2 - Once chicken is cooked, throw in chopped onions and mushrooms.
3 - Throw in any vegetables you want al dente - aka a little bit crunchy - peppers, mange tout, baby corns, beansprouts.
4 - Once everything is cooked to your liking, chuck in a sachet of sauce. The Amoy ones are my favourite, particularly their Chow Mein. Yum.
5 - Add straight-to-wok noodles. I adore udon ones.
6 - Eat! And if, like me, you're incapable of making a single portion, take to work for lunch tomorrow, too!
