I’m still learning every day about healthy eating with my family and friends.
Potatoes, onions, cabbage, lettuce, tomatoes, taro, kumara, pumpkin, broccoli, cauliflower, silver beet, spring onions are the only vegetables I know.
Those are the only vegetables my parents cooked for me and my siblings. We would have cabbage and salt meat with potatoes, Taro and chicken with chop suey.
I am now learning how to cook with different types of vegetables. I go on YouTube to watch how to cook certain foods. I google each week for new recipes to try, like Chicken and Vegetable stir fry, and everyone loved it. Here’s the recipe below.
1 (3 1/2-ounce) bag boil-in-bag long-grain rice
2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
12 ounces skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into 1/4-inch-thick strips
3 cups thinly sliced napa (Chinese) cabbage
1 cup sugar snap peas, trimmed and halved diagonally
1 large red bell pepper, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons lower-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
2 green onions, cut diagonally into 1/2-inch pieces
1. Prepare rice according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.
2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil; swirl to coat. Add chicken; cook 2 minutes on each side or until done. Add cabbage, peas, and bell pepper. Cook 2 minutes or until crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Combine soy sauce and next 3 ingredients in a small bowl; stir with a whisk. Add soy sauce mixture to pan; cook 1 minute, stirring gently to coat. Serve with rice. Sprinkle with onions.
