Meatless Monday: Chinese New Year Special

This year February 19th is Chinese New Year and this year it is the year of the sheep (my birth year). People born in this year are gentle, compassionate and willing to take good care of others although they can be worriers.  This should be a calmer year before the year of the monkey, which is next year.



Honey, soy and ginger stir-fry
Serves 2

Ingredients

The vegetables below are suggestions.  Feel free to add others of your choice such as sliced red cabbage, carrot sticks, sliced mushrooms or beansprouts.
2 tbsp organic olive oil
1 red onion, peeled and sliced
2 cloves garlic
1/2 red, yellow or orange pepper, sliced 
1/8th spring cabbage, finely chopped
1/4 Mooli, chopped into sticks
4 tbsp sweetcorn kernals, soya beans or peas
1 can organic chickpeas (protein boost optional)
3cm piece ginger
3 tbsp tamari
1 tbsp honey
A handful of cashew nuts


Heat the oil in a wok and stir fry the onion.  Add the cabbage, ginger and garlic and continue to stir fry for 2 minutes.  Add the other vegetables and stir fry a further minute.  Stir in the honey and soy and heat through. Serve with noodles, rice or if you are cutting down on carbs, cauliflower rice. (see http://40plusandalliswell.blogspot.co.uk/2015/02/the-vegan-diet-and-weight-gain.html ) Simply part defrost a bag of cauliflower, finely chop in a blender, boil for a few minutes, drain and serve.


Wishing you a Happy Chinese New Year.
