Veggie stir fry, on the fly.

Ah its Monday again

Meatless Monday

This recipe came out of NOWHERE. I was hungry this past Friday night but we hadn’t gone shopping and I wasn’t really feeling any of the leftovers in the fridge. So, as I searched around the kitchen as if I thought that something was going to grow in there, I saw frozen veggies in the freezer in thought BAM STIR FRY.

Ingredients.

  • Kale
  • Snap peas
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Olive oil
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Wheat spaghetti

It doesn’t get more amateur than what I did!

Directions.

  1. Bring water to a boil for your pasta. Stir to keep from sticking
  2. In a frying pan, I put just enough olive oil to cover the bottom, on medium heat.
  3. I tossed in the veggies, no amount, just as many as I could fit in my little pan!
  4. I added the garlic and onion powder, about a tablespoon or two. I probably would have rather used fresh garlic but it all worked out! (P.s I don’t mind onion powder but I cannot stand onions)
  5. Then I added the salt and pepper (just 1/2 tsp)
  6. Mix it all together.
  7. Because they were frozen veggies and not fresh, I covered them, I don’t know if that was an essential thing to do to aid in faster cooking or flavor, but I just did it.

Once everything was done, I drained the pasta

I put about a cup of the wheat pasta on a plate with a tsp of Earth Balance butter then placed about a cup of the mixed veggies

And TA DA.

An amazing Friday night dinner, completely on the fly, using what I had in the house already.

So easy.

And then on top of that, my mom had some, and so did my brother. AND my brother learned he likes more vegetables than just broccoli, it’s a miracle really.

Next time I make this I hope to use Spaghetti Squash and hopefully more veggies, like mushrooms and carrots, oh and Tofu! we’ll see!

I launched Miss Raee in 2016 purely for a twenty-something girl who is trying to figure it all out, who loves to write and finally decided to share it. I’ve had a hell of a time figuring out what I wanted this blog to be, and I’ve eventually narrowed it down to that I want this blog to be ME, every weird, quirky, loveable aspect of me and even more importantly anyone who also sees themselves as that weird, quirky, loveable person who might love plant-based cooking, multiple fandoms including Star Wars, Supernatural, Greys Anatomy, DC TV, Marvel, The Magicians and SO much more. I found myself being an advocate for mental health, for animals, for the environment, and for equality. I’m a big believer in the vibes you bring, the power of music, and how important the storytelling of books and movies and TV can be. If I’m not on the blog, you can find me sharing selfies and nonsense on Instagram @/amandaraeex3 and live-tweeting and putting in my two cents on twitter at @/amandaraee_x3, so I hope you’ll tag along with me on here and my social media and enjoy all the weird, quirky things we all love.
