Default Stir fry and Salad Mix

Stir fry and Salad Mix

I'm posting this (and a couple following) to both a.f.d and a.s.d
because we often get postings here on the natural good things in a wide
variety of veges, but it can be hard to include them in a busy person's
diet. I developed this system for myself after reading some of
Quentin's posts (Hope you're doing well mate).

Basic Mix:

One medium onion cut in eighths (halve it, quarter the halves)
1 cup coarsely chopped cabbage (any type)
1 diced carrot
1 cup Yellow Capsicum (bell pepper):
A few stalks of chopped celery

Options. Add all or any of these, but at least four different things.
Measurements, unless stated otherwise, are between a half-cup and a cup.
Corn and beans are subject to your post-meal BGs, but as it's spread
across multiple serves you'll find there will be little effect. Chop or
dice as appropriate:

Red or Green Capsicum (bell pepper):
Cauliflower florettes
Broccoli Florettes
Green Peas
Green (string) beans
Snow (snap) peas
cup sweet corn kernels
cup cooked kidney beans
assorted cooked other beans
Raw asparagus
Bok Choi
Scallions or eschallottes
And anything else I may have forgotten that you like or Quentin

After preparation, cover and store in the fridge. It should keep fresh
and crisp for several days, up to a week. See the next posts on what to
do with it for stir-fry, or simply add your favourite dressing to it for
a quick salad. Use a cup or two per person as a serve. You can also add
things like lettuce, tomato, avocado, diced cheddar at serving time for
a salad, but don't put them in the mix for storage because they will not
keep in the mix. Add cold cuts or ham for protein at serving time. Or
tofu if you must :-)

My simple salad dressing:

Mix two or three tbsp extra virgin olive oil, one tbsp balsamic vinegar,
one tbsp white vinegar, a small chopped clove of garlic, a touch of hot
chili, some chopped garden herbs to taste (basil, thyme, rosemary, mint
whatever); shake and add lightly to the salad.

Bon Appetit,

Cheers, Alan, T2 d&e, Australia.
