An Interesting Combination
I don't know why it never occurred to toss fresh spinach into a stir-fry before, but look! Fresh spinach in a stir fry.
What else have I in there... red and green bell peppers, cabbage, carrots, onion, garlic, stem ginger, sesame oil, corn oil, hoisan sauce and some five spice powder. At the last, I added some already baked tofu and served it over rice. I also made about a million potstickers (OK more like 100, but still) most of which are nicely packed in bags of ten in the freezer for future use. If you try that, be sure to freeze them on a plate first, before adding them to freezer bags. Oiling the plate helps with any sticking problems as well.
Seriously, you probably have a healthy dinner lurking in your vegetable bins that you didn't realise was there. Carrots and cabbage are the foundation of many a cheap meal in this household.
Leftovers go to work with Mr. Eat The Blog for his lunch. No wasting either. That's good-Mama hates waste. She really hates it.
