Stir fry is often our go-to, quick-fix, mid-week option and it’s not hard to see why – plenty of fresh meat, plenty of fresh veg and plenty of boiled rice means you’ve hit all your food groups in one meal and in a particularly healthy and balanced manner. But instead of reaching for a pre-prepared sachet of stir fry sauce, why not make you own? It’s much more straightforward than it sounds and there’s the added advantage of knowing EXACTLY what is going into it – none of those artificial sounding additives and thickeners, thank you very much.
The combination of runny honey, soy sauce and garlic is as pared-down as it gets but still has the perfect balance of sweet and savoury. What meat you use is entirely up to you, but I’ve gone with the classic chicken and when it comes to vegetables, I’ve budgeted for half a packet of basic stir-fry veg, but feel free to use your favourites instead.
