Tasty Traditional Stir-Fry Gone Healthy


Okay as you can tell..I am a little obsessed with stir-frys lately so look out for lots of new recipe like this one! It is sweet, salty, crunchy, chewy all at once. So many different flavours & textures! Try it out for yourself!

Ingredients:
Sauce:
1/2 tbsp soya sauce
3 tbsp chicken broth
1/2 tbsp rice vinegar
1 Tsp. splenda
1/2 tsp cornstarch

Stir Fry:
1/2-1tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp minced ginger
1 tsp minced garlic
1 Green onion chopped(green and white part)
1 small celery stalk chopped into pieces
1/2 cup cauliflower chopped
handful of almond slivers
1/2 cup broccoli
1/4-1/3 cup chopped cooked chicken/canned chicken(I added a little salt/pepper to mine first)
1/2 cup cooked brown rice(1/4 cup uncooked)

Directions:
Sauce: Whisk together all ingredients, be sure to mix in the cornstarch well. It may settle on the bottom but don’t worry. Just give it another quick whisk before adding to your Stir-fry and it should be fine! It’s okay if there is a bit stuck in the bowl.

Stir Fry: Make sure all of your vegetables/chicken are chopped in advance and your sauce is ready. Heat a pan over medium heat lightly sprayed with cooking spray. Once hot, add the sesame oil and rotate pan to coat. Add the ginger and garlic, stir and let it bubble for 1 minute. **Keep a cup of water ready incase your pan begins to dry out during your cooking. You can add a little water whenever needed so that your veggies don’t burn!(Since we are cooking with very little oil).** Now add your carrots and cook for 2 minutes then add celery as well and cook for another 4 minutes or so. (You can cook longer depending on your preference for vegetable texture). Then add the broccoli & caulilflower. Keep moving the veggies around with a wooden spoon or spatula to coat in oil. Once vegetables begin to look done or are cooked to your liking, add half of the green onion. After cooking for another minute or so, throw in your chicken, almonds and brown rice(If you want, you could choose to leave the brown rice out and just add some soya sauce to it, then serve the veggies and everything on top afterwards) Then add your sauce & additional green onion. Stir everything together to coat nicely. Once heated through, take off the heat and serve! You could also add a few red pepper flakes if you’d like! Enjoy! 🙂
