The team at Pura kindly sent me some of their lovely products to try and challenged me to create a healthy and easy recipe.
I’m always up for a challenge and as you know I’m a huge fun of both quick and Asian inspired flavours so I decided to make a veggie stir fry with peanut sauce with green herby rice – I think it ticks all over the boxes.
Stir frys are a brilliant quick dinner, they can be whipped up with any veg you have in your fridge and they’re also one of the best ways of incorporating lots vegetables into your meal. I’ve used some of my favourites here, cauliflower, broccoli and sugar snaps which all retain a gorgeous crunch but old favourites like carrots, peppers and mushrooms are also delicious.
What can I say about this peanut sauce – well it’s super peanutty so I’m in heaven. And it’s super versatile – it’s brilliant as a sauce for stir frys but it’s also a delicious marinade for tofu or used as a dipping sauce.
I also love adding extra veggies and herbs to rice, quinoa etc so that’s exactly what I did here and added big handfuls of spinach, coriander and mint to my rice. I think it complements the stir fry perfectly.
I used Pura Coconut Oil Blend Spray to cook my veg and it’s a lovely blend of coconut, sunflower and rapeseed oils. In a convenient spray and totally flavour free which is great if you don’t want the oil to flavour your dishes. Pura Coconut Oil Blend is also high in Omega 3, it is lower in saturated fat than traditional coconut oil.
It’s actually brilliant for cooking pancakes, as you can just use a quick spray to coat the bottom of the pan rather than using lots of oil and getting greasy rather than fluffy pancakes. And flavour free – happy days!
