Baby Pak choi stir fry

30

I love getting ahead of the 30-a-week-vegetable requirement. It’s a great boost for my gut health and it’s a weekly mini- challenge that gets me thinking about diversity in my diet. I usually start the week with a fridge full of vegetables and good intentions. I get so excited about buying vegetables and imagining what I am going to do with them during the course of the week. Sometimes my exuberance gets the better of me and I run out of steam because I imagined I had more time in the day. The best way to use up vegetable is in soups. See my curried sweet potato and coconut soup I made last week to use up a bag of sweet potatoes and my vegan cheese. Another great way is to make stir fry.

Baby Pak Choi Stir Fry

Remember that chicken hack I did on Sunday? Well here is the stir fry I did for dinner last night. If you are vegan or vegetarian you can substitute your choice of protein at the end where I add the chicken. Ideas for protein for vegans are seitan nuggets, which resemble chicken. You can also use tofu, or black beans. Have fun and make your version. You can also just leave it as is and enjoy, without the addition of any protein.
