Easy, Healthy Recipes: Paleo or Vegan Stir fry

Easy, Healthy Recipes: Paleo or Vegan Stir fry
I do admit that if I am busy or feeling lazy, my go to meals are either chili or a stir fry. I love dishes like that - easy to put together and very difficult to get wrong. 

Today, I'll be sharing a very easy stir fry - and paleo (or vegan if you prefer), too! I actually should say, I loosely call it a stir fry and the only reason I do that is because it was made in a wok and have to stir it often. Really, this is just a combination of vegetables that is flavored with awesome spices.

Portions: 

4 adults and 1 toddler 
If you choose a vegan option, then this will make a slightly smaller portion, but it should be enough for 2-3 adults. 

Ingredients

  • 1/4 of a white cabbage
  • 2 carrots (cut into match sticks) 
  • 2 cups of broccoli
  • 1 onion
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 green onion (for garnish) 
  • Thumb sized piece of ginger (grated) 
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk 
  • Stir fry spice mix
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • Optional: 1/2 a kilo of ground meat (turkey or chicken)
  • Optional: 1/2 teaspoon of chili peppers or cayenne pepper

Instructions

  • Heat coconut oil in a wok on medium heat
  • Add onion and garlic 
  • Add meat (if using) 
  • Once that has browned, add the rest of the fresh vegetables and cook for about five to seven minutes. 
  • Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix together the spices and coconut milk 
  • Pour over the veggies  
  • Bring the milk to a boil and then turn down the heat. Let the milk cook down for several minutes or until the vegetables are tender enough for you. 
  • Garnish with green onion and serve over cauliflower rice 

Because this meal is cooked on a fairly high heat, you need to mix it often. It will sizzle and be loud, but that's a-okay!
