Introducing "Gotta Eat, Can't Cook"
Today we feature a recipe from a fellow we met on Twitter who has a really nice website called "Gotta Eat!" (can't cook!). We are only listing the ingredients and simple directions for you to get an idea of what this recipe is about. For an in-depth look and how-to on making your own successful stir-fry and other cooking methods, make sure to check out this site!
- Handful of Bok Choy
- Handful of Fresh Leafy Greens (Spinach or Beet Tops or even Tops of Pea Plants shown here)
- Handful of Snow Peas
- Handful “Bullet” Baby Bell (or any Bell) Peppers
- 3 Garlic Cloves
- 1/4 Red (or any) Onion
- Olive or Vegetable Oil
- Apple Cider (Rice or any) Vinegar
- Feta (or any) Cheese
- Teriyaki Sauce
- Hot Sauce (optional)
1. Rinse the fresh vegetables in a colander and let them drip dry in the sink.
2. Chop garlic,…
…red (or any) onion,…
…and bell peppers (baby bell or “bullet” peppers shown here).
3. Put the frying on the stove (1), and turn on the burner heat to MEDIUM (2).
4. Check the frying pan for proper cooking temperature by running tap water on your fingers (1) and flicking the water in the pan (2). The pan is ready for cooking if the water sizzles when it hits the pan surface and quickly evaporates. (NOTE: If the water sizzles and evaporates in a puff as soon as it hits the pan, move the pan to a cool burner for a few minutes. Turn down the heat setting a few notches on the burner you originally used, and heat the pan again. If the water doesn’t sizzle, keep heating the pan until it does.)
5. Pour enough olive or vegetable oil into the pan to coat the pan surface evenly.
6. Add the chopped garlic, onions, bok choy, bell peppers, snow peas and leafy greens,…
…and a shot of both vinegar and teriyaki sauce.
7. Stir with with a spatula and cook only until the leafy vegetables just start to show signs of wilting. Then…
…turn off the burner heat,…
…add and mix in some crumbled feta (or other) cheese), and right away…
…transfer the stir-fried vegetables to a bowl or plate, and either serve as is or…
…add a shot of hot sauce to taste.
