One dish I used to love preparing, in the days pre-Baby, was stir fry - very quick, very easy and can be made in a multitude of ways, according to whatever ingredients you have available. It's made even easier, when you can whack in a ready made sauce!
It was off the menu for a while in our house, because although we managed to find rice-based noodles, ready made stir fry sauces can be harder to obtain, if you are gluten and soya free!
However... thanks to a relative newcomer to our store cupboard - Coconut Aminos, stir fry is back on the menu - just so long as we use veggies that Kiddo will eat.
So here's how we do it:
2 chicken breasts/pack of kind size Prawns
Sesame Oil (if you can't use sesame, just use Olive Oil)
2 carrots or 2 handfuls of mixed frozen veg.
3 spring onions
2 packets gluten free rice noodles (we use Amoy - specifically labelled 'gluten free') OR
2 packets pre-prepared rice (we use Tilda, as it is labelled gluten free)
2 eggs (optional)
2 tbsp Coconut Aminos (I get mine from Amazon, but you can find them in Holland and Barrett and Ocado)
You will need a large frying pan or wok, to cook this dish.
1. Clean and chop veggies, fairly finely, so that they are easy to cook - carrot cooks easily when sliced into ribbons with a peeler - not so much when in big chunks.
2. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 of sesame oil in a pan. Add the raw chicken/prawns and cook on a medium heat, until they are cooked. Whilst cooking keep stirring and turning meat/prawns, to ensure that they are evenly cooked.
3. If you want to add egg, clear a space in the pan, break them into the pan, and stir them into a scramble. Then remove meat and eggs into a bowl.
4. Replenish oil, before adding in your veggies. Cook for a further three-five minutes, or so before adding the noodles, and keep stirring for another three minutes or so!
5. Add the meat/prawns back in and a couple of tablespoons of Coconut Aminos. Make sure everything is mixed together well, before serving, into bowls.
|Perfectly easy and great for swift summer dining!|
