I Have Nothing In My Fridge Stir-Fry

Serves 3-4
LeftoversUnder 30 Mins


Start with a Grain (choose one)

  • 250g quinoa, short-grain brown rice, white rice, jasmine rice or pearl barley

Add a vegetable (choose 1-2)

  • broccoli, aubergine, cauliflower, mushroom, peppers, or leeks

Add a raw leafy green (choose 1)

  • spinach, shredded kale, Swiss chard, little gem, watercress, cabbage

Add flavour

  • pickled ginger, roasted garlic, roasted red peppers, sautéed onions

To serve (optional)

  • 1 tbsp toasted seeds
  • 2 tbsp leftover hummus


Begin by steaming your grain. Bring 325ml of water to a light boil, add your grain and stir. Reduce the heat, cover with a lid and cook for 15–20 minutes or until light, fluffy and chewy.

Meanwhile, sauté your vegetables. Add 1 tablespoon of sesame oil to a frying pan over a medium–high heat. Add your accent flavours and cook for 2 minutes. Next, add your vegetables and stir frequently to coat all the ingredients. Chop your greens, add to the pan and cook until wilted.

Serve in a bowl. If you have an avocado, toasted seeds or even that leftover hummus it will go nicely as an addition. Eat your food and don’t let it go to waste!
