I was given the opportunity to review Good natured salad. I used to run a mile at the though of healthy living but with my weight gain I have to do something after all I want to be around for my son.
|I washed the pepper and baby plum tomatoes.|
|I then chopped the pepper and add both the pepper and tomatoes to some rice and chicken to make a nice healthy crunchy salad.|
The peppers and tomatoes cost around £1.60 from ASDA a bit pricey but as its Organic and pesticide free you pay for what you get. I don't grow my own vegetables though I really should start to my lovely friend Jane Willis over at her awe inspiring blog and her husband has the most amazing garden blog.
Well Jane has provided me with a lovely recipe which I shall be using on the remaining vegetables I have left and adding a few myself Organic and pesticide free of course.
Sweet and Sour vegetable stir-fry serves 4
A selection of vegetables eg:
150 g sugar snap peas
150g baby sweetcorn, halved
1 bunch spring onions, sliced on the diagonal
1 tbs oil for frying
For the sauce:
2 tbs soy sauce
2 tbs white wine vinegar
2 rounded tbs tomato purée
Juice of 1 orange
1 rounded tsp cornflour
1 rounded tbs Canderel
100 ml water
Whisk together all the sauce ingredients except the water then gradually blend in the water.
Heat the wok and stir fry the veg until just tender. Add the sauce mixture at the end of cooking, stirring until it comes to the boil and thickens.
Serve with steamed rice as a light lunch. You can make it into a main meal by adding some chicken, tofu or prawns to the stir fry.
