Hoisin Vegetable Stir Fry…


Stir fry is one of those quick throw together meals, you can add any vegetables you like and then it is a case of adding rice or noodles either as a side dish or tossed in with the vegetables.

You can add meat or Quorn products to this dish too if you wish, wild mushrooms, mangetout, beansprouts, beanshoots, sugar snap peas and many more vegetables can be added too. Stir fries are great for adding in what ever you like.


Some recommended items from our kitchen to make this dish…

  • Silicone whisks in varying sizes, much prefer silicone to metal as it rusts.
  • A decent set of knives for chopping, with a knife sharpener which is always handy.
  • Double sided dry and liquid measuring spoons for times when you need to measure both liquid and dry ingredients.
  • Garlic crusher, we have had this one for a good while, easy to clean and can crush multiple cloves at once saving time.
  • A good sized wok.
