    Hey everyone,

    I always seem to stuggle to make nice stirfries - silly i know - they should be easy!:rolleyes:

    Has anyone got any recipies that are vegetarian or easily made vegetarian?

    Or do you all just use a jar/packet for sauce - if so what do you recommend?

    Thanks,

    Sarah x

    I have just had a nice big bowl of vege stir fry!

    I bought a stir fry pack from Asdo but then I added some mushrooms and pepper and sweetcorn (not your typical stir fry ingredient I admit but I love the stuff!). In a frying pan I broke a couple of eggs and whisked so it all broke up really thin, like egg from egg fried rice. I added that to the veg along with a pinch of chilli. Stir fried for 4 minutes, added 50g of cooked rice and then a massive splash of soy sauce. I don't like the sauces as they make it all gloopy (is that a real word?!) but I love it with just soy sauce.

    I also have 2 slices of nimble bread which I sprayed with frylight and rubbed a garlic clove over and then put in the oven whilst the stir fry was cooking. It is as close to garlic bread as I can get!!

    I sometimes marinate some quorn or tofu on garlic, chilli, giner and soy and cook that with the veg too. I try and amrinate it for as long as poss so that it really takes all the yumminess.

    I hope that helps!

    Hello!

    Butternut squash is nice added to stir fry if you slice it really thinly or can peel 'ribbons' of it off to add.

    I always like water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, peppers, onion, carrorts, cabbage, beansprouts, brocolli, baby sweetcorn, and mange tout in my stir fry.

    If you want a veggie option add quorn pieces or maybe some rice to bulk it out if you are on a green day.

    Also, i buy the Blue Dragon stir fry sauces. They work out at roughly 3 syns for 1/2 a pouch and they do some really nice flavours.

    I never thought to try that with eggs, i'll give it a go. I do tend to marinate tofu with ginger, garlic & soy but by the time i've added veg & noodles it doesn't taste of anything. Thanks

    I usually just throw the part cooked chicken pieces or quorn pieces, and a load of free stir fry veggies, and a packet of stir fry sauce into the wok, and stir together until cooked and then serve.....and it has always turned out brilliantly...

    A bit of a tip for stir fries if you are using a meat like chicken or beef. Is to cut your meat into stir fry sized pieces place in a bowl and cover with some soy sauce, and chopped fresh garlic and ginger and allow to marinate for a couple of hours. Then add the meat with the marinade straight to the wok or frying pan and cook and then throw in your veggies, gives a great flavour to the stir fry

    Love stir frys and think its a good way to use up any bits of veg in the fridge that aren't of much use on their own. I'm a ginger fan so always add loads of ginger to mine along with fresh pineapple and my secret touch of a spash of sherry mixed with soy sauce and sweetner. I know it carrys syns but the amount I use (about a tablespoon) is less than a packet or jar per person and it tastes yummy.
