5:2 Scape, Broccoli, Carrot Stir Fry

Obviously, you can toss any vegetables into this combo.  Stir fry is really my go to meal a lot of time. If you managed to reserve a good portion of your calories, you can even have it with some quinoa.  A little quinoa mind you because those carbohydrate calories add up REAL fast. But quinoa is worth it because it can fill your belly and has some much, nutritionally, going on.

All of the 5:2 recipes I am posting I try to get it at under 200 calories.  Obviously if you have a lotted yourself  more calories you can up the vegetables or up the fat or add in some quinoa.  Cooked quinoa is a 110 calories for a 1/2 cup. Or you can add in some peanuts- 160 for a quarter cup.

Scape, Broccoli, Carrot Stir Fry

1 teaspoon sesame oil (40)
1 cup broccoli (31)
1 cup carrots (45)
1 cup celery (16)
1/4 cup chopped scapes (50)
1 tablespoon oyster sauce (Lee Kum Kee- 9)
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic

Heat a wok or a large frying pan.  Once it is hot add in sesame oil and vegetables.  Keep flame at about medium high.  Keep stirring so that it does not scorch.  Some browning is good because it beings out the natural sweetness of the vegetables.  Once they are crisp tender add in garlic, soy sauce and oyster sauce.

Total calorie count: 191.
