I’m back with another round of Taste Testing Tuesday! This could be the trick to getting your kids to eat more veggies! It’s at least worth of try, right?! 😉 I’m talking about stir frying some vegetables.
There are many vegetables you can use in your stir fry or make a combination of them. You can stir fry some meat too or just go for the veggies. For this post, I used a little bacon to add some flavor but kept it mostly to the veggies. Here’s how I cooked ours: I started out frying a few pieces of bacon in a large skillet. I made a large batch so I needed to use our large electric skillet.
Remove the bacon after it has cooked till its nicely browned and crunchy. Place it on some paper towels to let the grease drain away. When it’s cool enough to handle, crumble it into small pieces. We’ll add it in at the end.
Here are some suggestions of veggies you might like to try but the list is almost endless!
Raw broccoli and/or cauliflower.
Raw cabbage and/or raw carrots, chopped into small pieces
Raw mushrooms, sliced, and sugar snap peas. I broke the peas into 2 pieces for a nicer size.
A package of broccoli slaw.
I used the bacon grease that was in the skillet after cooking the bacon and then I added a large chunk of butter. Once the butter was melted, I added the onions and garlic and cooked them for a few minutes before adding the other veggies.
I added the broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, cabbage and broccoli slaw next.
I cooked that for a little while and then added the mushrooms and sugar snap peas. We like the peas to still have some crunch to them and the mushrooms don’t take as long to cook up.
We like to add some soy sauce to our stir fried veggies. There are other sauces you might want to try like teriyaki sauce. I would like to add some pineapple tidbits too the next time we make some. Kids might like the pineapple too as it will add a bit of sweetness to the mixture. Remember to stir in your bacon pieces when the rest has finished cooking.
I hope you’ll try stir frying some veggies for your kids and you will find another successful way of getting them to eat something healthy! The struggle is real, isn’t it?? LOL Been there, struggled through it too! You’ve got this! 🙂 Hugs!
