Sesame and Peanut Butter Stir Fry

October 25, 2011

This is the best way to load up on good veggies! Every time we make this stir fry, we try to stuff it with as many veggies as we can. I never really calculate the ingredients (I should do it one day…) but I will write down approximately how much I put in so it can somewhat guide you if you are interested in trying this :)

As I was saying, when we make this stir fry, we add loads of veggies like spinach, bok choy, broccoli,etc. All very good for your health and also loaded with vitamins :) The recurring ingredients, aside of the previously mentioned veggies are : Sesame oil, sesame seeds, low sodium soy sauce, peanut butter, celery, garlic, fresh cilantro and “Asian Sesame Marinade” from Kraft. I never put an exact amount of each ingredient, I just “Freestyle it”. Actually, now that I think of it, Raosted peanuts would be a good addition to this recipe.

Anyways, feel free to add or subtract things from the ingredient list to make it your own!

Bon Appetit!

  1. In a large pot, bring water to a boil for the pasta. Cook the pasta and drain them. Mix them into a bit of sesame oil to make sure they don't stick together while you are preparing the veggies.
  2. Start by heating up your oil. Add your garlic,celery,bok choy, peppers and broccoli and cook for about 3-4 minutes. Stir frequently so the veggies don't burn. Add about 1/4 cup of water 2 minutes in to steam the veggies a bit.
