Okay, I’m not going to lie….I was a bit hesitant at first about trying this recipe. I just wasn’t to sure what to expect. Well I have news for you – AMAZING – worth every bite! On top of that it was quick and easy to make! Pearl and Serene do a fantastic job of creating recipes that are for women on the run.
If you have a book, the recipe for Sweet and Spicy Asian Stir Fry is found on page 341/342. If you do not have a book I encourage you to purchase one!
This dish makes my heart sing! It was fantastic.
To keep this dish in the FP and E setting I used 99% lean ground turkey, instead of the chicken that is mentioned in the recipe. However, chicken would be just as great! I made a dinner the other night that included chicken and this amazing sauce! Anyway, just so you know as long as the meat is lean then it should keep you in the FP/E setting.
I didn’t have any frozen stir-fry veggies on hand so I pulled out what I did have:
- Zucchini (made it into spaghetti using a veggetti)
- Red Pepper
- Brussels sprouts (THM has me finding that I like more foods that I thought I did)
There are a lot of veggies to choose from but that is what I had so that is what I used. I let the veggies cook in water/broth until they were nice and tender and then added the other ingredients that the recipe calls for. The aroma was delicious.
I didn’t add the zucchini spaghetti until about 5-7 mins before turning off the heat. I like my spagettified zucchini to have a bit of texture and not turned to mush. A short cook time keeps them crisp but cooked. You may have to add a bit more liquid to help steam them.
I also cut the recipe down because I was the only one eating it. Though I probably could have eaten the full recipe it was that wonderful!!
I had the THM Not Naughty Noodles on hand so out they came. I rinsed them and cut them as the sisters suggest in this video. As Serene puts it you cut them like “wang, wang, wang.” She makes me laugh! I also love that their brand does not have that fishy smell. Genius!!
Once they are ready they are added to the delightful veggie mix and you have yourself an amazing recipe created by Pearl and Serene!
By using the Konjac Noodles I kept this dish in FP. However, adding quinoa or rice will give you an E dish. This Asian stir-fry is a MUST TRY! The flavours come together so wonderfully well. You can play around with what spices and seasonings you add to the veggies but I promise you will enjoy this dish!
So, what are you waiting for. Go try this dish. Remember to share the recipe with your family, they will be amazed! Or wait…maybe don’t share it with your family. They will probably eat it all on you!! Let me know how it turns out for you. I think you will thoroughly enjoy it. Like I did.
We are so blessed to have food daily.
God is good!
