Best with a combination of different veg - the more colours and textures the better. Also a great way of using up stray veg you have hanging around int he fridge. You might also like to include chicken, prawns, cashews, beans, tofu or another protein. Serve with rice or noodles.
Oil for frying (vegetable, groundnut or coconut work well)
1 onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 thumb- sized piece of ginger, chopped
1 small chilli, chopped and seeds removed (or to taste)
Selection of shredded or sliced veg such as carrots, celery, kohl rabi, courgettes, fennel,mushrooms, peppers, greens, broccoli, cauliflower, leeks, wild garlic, green beans
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1-2 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
1-2 Tbsp sesame oil
Chop everyting so it's ready before you start cooking.
Heat oil in a wok or large frying pan.
Tip in the onion and stir around for a few seconds, then add the garlic, ginger and chilli and keep stiring.
Add the other ingredients starting with the toughest and moving to the tenderest, so carrots and celery early, mushrooms and spinach last (if using meat add it to the mix early on.)
Optional: top with toasted sesame seeds and chopped coriander.
