Chinese Stir Fry in 7 minutes

Updated on October 6, 2011

Dinner in seven

I love this recipe. I have used this late in the week when my groceries are getting low. Often I use the left over ingredients and save money cooking an inexpensive dish at home. This is a very low cost good for any budget dish. It tastes great and I can make dinner fast.

Chinese Stir Fry

4 tablespoons of sesame oil ( you can substitute flax seed, grape seed or any vegtable oil )

1 teaspoon of garlic powder

2 teaspoons of ginger

1 teaspoon of chili powder

2 tablespoons of soy sause

1 dash of lemon juice

3-4 oz of broccoli

1 red pepper cut in long thin strips or slices

1 can or 1 cup of sliced left over cooked carrots

1 cup of frozen or left over snow peas

Add the spices and oil to a warm pan. Add vegetables and cook and stir for five minutes. Use medium to semi- high heat. Then add 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of black pepper. Cook for two more minutes.

Cook for seven minutes total. Now your just about done! Serve over cooked thin spaghetti and sprinkle with mint. If you do not have fresh mint in the house you can cut open a tea bag of herbal mint tea and sprinkle a splash of mint flavor over the top of this dish.

      For many years I lived in Clarksville, N.Y. will find this quite funny. I lived on a little farm in a very small very quiet community. Not what most people think of when they hear the words New York. My house was around 2 hundred years old. Total farm country. I had a boring quiet life but, I loved it most of the time. We had a well for water and wood for heat. And I mean only wood. Nothing else. The kids were a lot of noise and the dog and I used to wake to the sound of 1,000 geese landing in a field outside my bedroom window. This is how I became an author. Now, I live in town but, have only done so 3 years. My fast meals came from rushing around juggling with sports and kids. I am glad you like the recipe. Joanne Kathleen Farrell,

      Nicely done. Never thought of using the teabag before. Good idea.
