Winter Stir Fry

I had a bunch of veggies in the fridge, and was craving something flavourful and healthy, yet hearty.  I decided to make a winter stir-fry.

 

This stir fry contained: rutabaga, beets, red onion, carrots, red cabbage, zucchini and kale.  

 
 

I chopped the veggies into bite-size pieces and heated 1 T of coconut oil in a wok.  I cooked the rutabaga, beets, red onion, and carrots until almost tender, salting a bit throughout.  I then tossed in 1 small (160 ml) can of coconut milk, 3 tsp of curry powder and 1 tsp ginger.  Next I added the cabbage and zucchini and cooked those until tender before adding the kale just until wilted.

I sprinkled sesame seeds on top before digging in.


This made a perfect lunch, and I have plenty left over to enjoy as a side dish with another couple of meals.  I had never put rutabaga, beet or kale in a stir fry before, but they were great!

Love roasted cauliflower, with parmesan.

For some reason we don't stir fry a lot, but often use broccoli and carrots (very basic).

That looks wonderful! I just love beets. One of our favorite winter time foods are brussel sprouts and butternut squash :-)
