Easy and Quick Vegetable Stir-Fry

I love stir fry, hubby does not! So as you can probably guess, I don’t make them as often as I would like, especially since the girls left home. The girls love making and eating stir fry as much as I do so I had allies when they lived at home. I’m glad they enjoy healthy eating and miss working with them in the kitchen. Here’s how to make an easy and quick vegetable stir-fry. Feel free to switch up the vegetables with what ever you have on hand!

Hot And Spicy Winter Cole Slaw

Here is a hot and spicy winter cole slaw recipe that’s quick and easy to make, tastes great and it’s healthy for you and your family too. Cabbage and other vegetables in the Cruciferae or Brassica family such as kale, broccoli, collards and brussels sprouts are a good source of vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants and phytonutrients. You’ll get added benefits from the hot peppers so if you like hot spicy food ramp up the heat with some red pepper flakes. To preserve the most nutrients don’t over cook the cabbage in this recipe, it should be tender crisp.

1 tablespoon Watkins grapeseed oil, original
1 (16 ounce) bag prepared coleslaw vegetables, washed or 4-5 cups shredded cabbage, and carrots
1 tablespoon Watkins cilantro
1 teaspoon Watkins chili powder
1 teaspoon Watkins sea salt Continue reading Hot And Spicy Winter Cole Slaw

Vegetarian Chili with Black Beans and Corn

Hubs is a meat and potato man but I like to sneak in some vegetarian meals every week because I think they are healthier. I’m making this delicious vegetarian chili with black beans and corn today, using seasonal, organic produce I picked up at our local farm market. The combination of beans and corn makes a complete protein which is important if you are following a vegetarian diet.

2 Tablespoons Watkins grapeseed oil, original unflavored, garlic and parsley or citrus and cilantro
2 organic red bell peppers, diced
1 onion, diced
4 cloves of garlic, mined or pressed or 2 teaspoons Watkins organic garlic granules
2 teaspoons Watkins organic chili powder
2 cups organic tomatoes, peeled or 2 cups canned tomatoes
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups organic corn kernels, fresh or frozen
1/2 teaspoon Watkins sea salt, or to taste
1 teaspoons Watkins organic black pepper, or to taste

Garnish with: Continue reading Vegetarian Chili with Black Beans and Corn
