Fancy Stir-Frys

Hello, everyone! I hope you’ve had a WONDERFUL week thus far! I sure have!

I’ve been eating lots of veggie stir-frys this week. A stir fry I often make (and love) consists of corn, broccoli, spinach, and tomatoes. I love putting tomatoes into stir-frys because the heat releases their sweet juices and makes the stir-fry more stew-like!

The “recipe” is basically veggies and spices. However, I made this stir-fry fancy by hollowing out a farmer’s market tomato and putting the veggies (including the tomato “guts”) into it.

Fancy Stir-Fry (serves 1)

  • 1 large tomato
  • 1 ear of corn
  • 2 large handfuls (about 2 cups) of spinach
  • about 1 cup of broccoli
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp italian seasoning
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • cooking spray

Gut the tomato by cutting off the top and taking the insides out with a spoon. This will leave you with a hollow tomato (picture below). Then take out a big pan, spray it, and cut the veggies. Then add the corn, broccoli, and tomato “guts” into the pan, spray them with cooking spray, and turn the heat up to high. Add the spinach and the spices and stir frequently until the spinach has decreased in size and the veggies look cooked. Turn off the heat, scoop the veggies into the tomato “bowl”, and enjoy!

Another veggie dish I’ve been enjoying is zucchini “noodles” with a homemade tomato “sauce”. All you have to do to make it is…

  1. Julienne a zucchini to make the noodles (if you don’t have a spiralizer, just use a carrot peeler!!!).
  2. Cut up and sauté a large tomato, a handful of mushrooms, a handful of broccoli, and a handful of cauliflower.
  3. Add ½ tsp italian seasoning.
  4. Add the “sauce” to the “noodles” and enjoy! I ate this meal with a delicious pumpkin muffin.

Enjoy your veggies and have a fantabulous weekend! Have any fun plans?
