Broccoli Stir Fry

Stir Fry Recipes

The Thanksgiving weekend is coming to an end for our southern neighbours and with the tradition of an abundance of delicious food, it is okay to consume whatever you see in sight every now. I know I enjoy doing this but as a new week starts and with the holiday season food fest just around the corner its a great time to eat something nutritious and healthy. I enjoy my stir fry but the calorie count can rise quite quickly depending on the ingredients and sauces we add to the meal but I have come up with a tasty, filling and more importantly with a low calorie count. I always make sure to load up on vegetables for just about any meal but a vegetarian stir fry is all about the vegetables. You will need to make sure you have a large size wok and the key ingredient is of course broccoli, use a food chopper to pulse the broccoli florets, you can use frozen broccoli if you like just make sure to let it thaw and add all your favourite vegetables. When it comes to soy sauce if you use a low sodium kind then you may want to add some salt to the stir fry. The best about this stir fry is that you can also use it for a side if you want to have something more then just vegetables.
