Asparagus, Broccoli, Ginger, and Mint Stir-fry
Stir-fries require quick work; have all ingredients ready-prepared, chopped, or sliced. You can use your own selection of vegetables – just remember to add them in the right order, with the ones that require longer cooking going in first.
Tip in a bag of ready-prepared and chopped vegetables, either frozen or fresh.
Heat the oil in a wok over a medium-high heat, and swirl to coat the surface. Add the chillies and ginger and toss for a few seconds, then add the spring onions and a few seconds later add the garlic. Stir-fry for 5 minutes until soft.
Add the pepper, and stir-fry for a few minutes. Add the broccoli, and stir-fry for a few minutes more, before adding the asparagus. Continue stir-frying for another minute or two.
Sprinkle over the sugar, and season well with salt and black pepper. Stir-fry for a few seconds until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat, and stir through the mint leaves. Serve immediately either on its own, or with some fluffy rice.
