Vegetarian Stir Fry Recipe

Well, I just made a huge pan of stir fry for dinner, and there’s plenty left over for lunch and dinner tomorrow too.

I’ve never really followed a recipe when it comes to stir fry, I usually just chuck in whatever looks good in the fridge, but here’s how I made the dish tonight:

  1. Over medium heat, pour 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a pan, and then toss in 1/2 a package of tofu (cubed). Cook for 5-10 min. Then pour a bit of Stir Fry sauce on the cubes, and then place into a bowl for later.
  2. In the empty pan, pour in 1 cup of water, and toss in baby bok choy. Cover for about 5 minutes.
  3. Toss in pepper (I used the left-over yellow pepper from the pizza last week) and any other veggies you might want to add. I added 1/4 of a red onion. Cover for another 5 minutes.
  4. Add 1 package of udon noodles. Cover for 5 minutes, or until noodles start to separate easily.
  5. Add Stir Fry sauce and Sweet Thai Chili sauce to taste. You can probably toss any sort of Asian sauce you have lying around. Those 2 sauces are the only ones I have in my fridge, and they taste pretty good mixed together, considering I didn’t have any other options.
  6. Add bowl of tofu. Gently mix ingredients together.
  7. Serve and enjoy! :)

It’s not a very sophisticated recipe, but I like it because it uses fresh ingredients, it’s super easy to make, and it fills you up. Oh, and it actually tastes good.

Vegetarian Pizza Recipe

I just whipped together a delicious vegetarian pizza for dinner (and lunch tomorrow), so I thought I’d share with you the recipe! :)

  1. Use a store-bought crust, or if you’re really into it, use Jay’s Signature Pizza Crust recipe. This is the recipe I use every single time I make pizza. It’s super easy to make. The recipe will yield 2 crusts, so I usually just freeze half of the dough for another time.
  2. Preheat oven to 350F
  3. Roll dough out, and then brush with a mixture of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and garlic (depending on how much you like garlic. I use a lot of it and just put it through a hand held garlic press).
  4. Place 2 or 3 layers of spinach over the olive oil/garlic mixture.
  5. Cut up pepper (I used yellow pepper) and red onion, and place on top of spinach.
  6. Cut 1 Garden Goodness Veggie Chick’n Breast into cubes, and scatter. You can substitute and use real chicken if you’re a carnivore. :) Or skip this step altogether.
  7. Grate mozzarella on top.
  8. Drizzle a bit of Extra Virgin Olive Oil over the top of the pizza.
  9. Add desired pizza seasonings – I used VE‘s Pizza Seasonings, parsley, and red pepper flakes.
  10. Bake at 350F for 20-25 min, or until mozzarella turns golden brown.

I’m sorry my instructions aren’t very good … I was trying to remember how I made it, as I was eating it. :) Anyway, this recipe isn’t very fancy, but it’s easy and fast to make, and it’s tasty!
