Story
We may not call it stir fry but it's still very common because we cook our vegetables almost in the same way. You sauté your vegetables in garlic and onion, then you put seasonings, you add some pork or any kind of meat, and that's it. You can modify this recipe according to your preference. If it was not for Nunnie, I would put bagoong in it and it will be similar to pinakbet. Or if you want, you can put some boiled chicken liver to it, take off the bell peppers, put a little bit of cornstarch, and you can have chop suey. You can also add some more vegetables or substitute some vegetables if you want. For example, if you don't want the bell peppers, you can take it off the ingredients. We just added the bell peppers because it will give the stir fry a nice color. And also, if you don't want to put sesame oil, you don't have to. It's all optional. So, I can say that this recipe is really flexible or versatile. The good thing about this stir fry recipe is that it is very healthy. With all those vegetables? Man! Talk about good diet. If you are on a special diet or just simply trying to lose weight, then this is for you. It has a lot of fiber and taste good at the same time. If you don't want to use the regular vegetable cooking oil, you can substitute it with olive oil or light margarine. On my next Filipino recipes, I am gonna have to start using fat free, sugar free, or low calorie ingredients because of my gestational diabetes. Yeah, my sugar skyrocketed because I lost control of myself. Not good. So, for those who are trying to be healthy, this stir fry is for you.
