They say you should eat the rainbow for a healthy selection of vitamins and minerals. I have been experimenting a lot with no-oil stir-fried veggies. I make sure I always have an assortment of vegetables available in my fridge and freezer (and fruits!).
Did you know… you can stir fry veggies with or without oil? I was stoked to find out I didn’t need the oil to make this healthy snack.
What I did: This is a quick and delicious way to snack/lunch on some stir-fried veggies. All I did was throw together some frozen broccoli, frozen green beans, baby carrots, and grape tomatoes together. I cooked them until tender with seasonings of my choice. Here, it was garlic, salt, pepper, onion powder, and parmesan.
If your carrots or any of the veggies are still a little crunchy, that’s ok. There are more nutrients in raw vegetables. OR just cover the pan and reduce to low to let them cook a little longer in their own steam.
Experiment! Try some parmesan cheese and/or seasoned breadcrumbs in your stirfry. Or, if you want something more oriental, try sesame and soy sauce. You could always use teriyaki sauce or add nuts as garnish. If you want more protein, add tofu or your favorite meat.
I’ve been eating a lot of veggies in this manner. I’m finding it more enjoyable than eating them plain. Enjoy, and…
