Stir-fry Week

I’m making this week a stir-fry week.

With yellow or red onions and garlic as the main essentials in your kitchen, you practically can make any stir-fry dishes within minutes!

If all you have in the fridge is a bunch of vegetables that could rot within days,  stir-frys are such time-saver. Especially so  for busy working moms who doesn’t have time for regular grocery shopping – let alone cook up a feast after a long day at work.

So, roll up your sleeves, peel and slice some onions then press some garlic and toss them into a hot pan with a little olive oil. Add some sliced chillies if you wish. Add half a stock cube for a little flavour (you can omit this as this is optional), add salt to taste and continue to stir fry for a minute or two.

Then add in your choice of veggies. Cover it up for a few minutes and turn off the fire.


Serve with hot rice Or if you are on a diet, it’s good to eat it on its own too. Also very kid friendly.

    Ooooh Ann, I really like that you added turmeric to your bak choy. I’m sitting with a problem of so much veg in the fridge, don’t want to throw anything away but I was wondering what to do with it and now I know! Thank you for this idea – it’s going to work perfectly!

    • Most welcome! Glad you find that useful. 😀 I’m sooo guilty of hoarding veg till they almost rot, and it is indeed a good way to make use of them without having to dump them. You can also vary the taste with a dash of light soy sauce or oyster sauce. I find it to be a good accompanying dish on the side or when I get lazy.

  2. Yummy! We love them, and I usually add a bit of Soy Sauce to the oil. Now I know what to cook tomorrow, thanks dear 🙂 Have a lovely week!

    • That’s a good tip – adding soy sauce to the oil instead! I haven’t done that or thought of that before! Always good to learn something new. 😀 Have an awesome veggie week! xxx.

  3. Mmmm. Stir-fry. I know what we’re having tonight. Thanks for the inspiration.

    • Most welcome, Caspar! I’m tickled at how stir-frys can be a hit. Glad it inspired you! Enjoy. 😀
