This simple Stir Fried Greens recipe is here to make your life a whole lot easier. We are putting together a few of our favourite green veggies to make a super delicious and incredibly healthy meal for you and your loved ones.
Here at vegan.io, we are all about simplifying life. And by simple, we mean easy, not dull or tasteless. I try to come up with recipes that with little time and just a few ingredients you can create magic and get a good dose of nutrients into your system.
Adding green vegetables to your meals is a really easy way to pack on goodies, vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants, carotenoids, phytochemicals, etc. If you don't already, here are some good reasons to eat your greens on a regular basis:
These are just a few benefits and the great thing is that we have plenty of options to choose from. They come in all shapes and sizes, from bok choy to artichokes, to scallions and celery. There is no shortage of green veggies out there.
I don't know about you but the first veggie I think of when trying to add more green color to my diet is definitely spinach. It's so easy to mix in and it also has great health benefits on top of what I mentioned before.
But, too much of anything is never good and that goes for spinach as well. This amazing leafy green has a moderate amount of oxalate, a natural compound found in plants and humans. When we ingest oxalates they eventually go down the drain.
The issue comes when we overload our bodies with oxalate since they can reduce mineral absorption and result in kidney stones. So, even though we want to pack on green veggies we need to make sure we are mixing it up a bit.
For this reason, aside from the spinach, I also used baby bok choy, green beans, and scallions. All of these veggies are readily available and they all cook super quickly. You don't need to spend too much time fetching crazy ingredients nor waiting for them to cook. Win-win!!
The veggies have a ton of flavour on their own. But to make this recipe super special we made a simple but flavourful Asian-inspired sauce. We only need soy sauce, sriracha, and teriyaki sauce. The taste is umami with subtle hints of sweet and spicy. It's just perfect!
I cooked quinoa to go with these stir fried green beans, this will add some carbs, those essential amino acids we need, and some extra protein. Again, were are keeping things simple here but getting you a delicious and filling meal.
Maybe you are starting to get into a vegan diet but you are not sure where to start. Or maybe you've been at it for a while but you are in a rut and in need of a little lunch inspiration. Either way, this stir fried greens will definitely put a smile on your dial!
