I'm trying to be a vegan. I'm not terribly good at it. I don't have a big deal moral reason for it, just some gross, aging-related health problems I wont bore you with the oogy details, but they do seem to be radically improved by the avoidance of meat, milk, caffeine, alcohol, anything good, really...
So today I made two different vegetable stir fries for dinner. Both were really delicious, I have to admit.
Just use the basic formula and you could come up with all kinds of yummy things.
Enough for a side dish for four or for two vegans... This would be absolutely excellent with the addition of some thinly sliced pork chop.
Saute 1 sliced onion in 1 tbsp safflower oil. Add 1 thinly sliced clove of garlic, and 1 or 2 asian green chilies also sliced thinly. When the onions begin to brown, add 1 whole savoy cabbage sliced very thinly and one matchstick-ed carrot. Stir fry until cabbage begins to brown.
Add 1 tbsp. soy sauce and 2 tsp. sesame oil and cover for a few minutes until steam begins to collect on the lid (3 or 4 min). Toss and serve.
Variations to try:
Broccoli and sweet yellow pepper
Cauliflower and tomato
bean medly (green, sugar snaps, snow peas)
