Stir-frying vegetables: fast and healthy

Stir-frying is something which we in our Western cuisine have enthusiastically adopted from Asian cooking. It’s an extremely easy and fast way to get a healthy meal onto the table, with or without an Asian dimension. The benefit of stir-frying in a wok is that you need very little oil and can add heaps of vegetables. You can even add fruit, if that takes your fancy. Supermarkets have started to capitalise on this trend by offering precut vegetables, making it even easier to prepare a healthy meal.

Tips for stir-frying vegetables without losing the nutrients

A stir-fry recipe is a perfect way to get your daily serving of vegetables. How can you make sure that your vegetables are perfectly cooked? Stir-frying is done very quickly over a high heat. Good preparation is the essence of stir-frying, so make sure you cut your vegetables in advance. Try to cut them into even-sized pieces. Use a heat-tolerant oil or fat, such as coconut oil or red palm oil. Always start by stir-frying the vegetables which take the longest to cook, followed by the vegetables which will have the most influence on the flavour of the dish. These types of vegetables include onion, garlic and shallots. Start with hard, high-fibre vegetables and add leafy vegetables last. This is the best way to make sure your vegetables lose as few nutrients as possible.

Stefano describes himself as colourful, loud, a vegan, a friend, a discoverer, a digital nomad and straightforward. Stefano changed tack and started to eat and live a healthy vegan lifestyle His life took a wholly different course when he became very ill. At the age of 33 he was going with all guns blazing, but he didn't spare a thought for his own health - he smoked, drank a lot, worked up to 16 hours a day and drank around two litres of coffee daily. Then he developed two serious hernias, as well as being very overweight. He realised that he could not continue this way and decided on a complete turnaround. He quit drinking and smoking and slowly changed his diet, until he finally went almost completely vegan. Vegan, a step further than vegetarian Stefano's recipes are all vegan.
