With mushrooms, carrots and red bell peppers, this vegan asian stir fry will make you travel without leaving home!

INTENSE AND DELICIOUS

If there’s food and spices that fascinate me, are the Asian ones, particularly Chinese and Japanese! I find the combination of strong ingredients fascinating, which together balance so harmoniously and powerfully. The use of ginger, chives, toasted sesame oil, mushrooms, soy or teriyaki sauces, misos, rice vinegar, and I could be here for a whole day talking about the most varied and exotic ingredients used in Asian cuisine and that i love so much. 

 

Stir-fry made with these ingredients have a unique flavor and personality. It’s funny to see the contrast that exists between a more Mediterranean stir-fry made with olive oil, onion, garlic and bay leaves and an Asian stir-fry where the flavors are all more intense. It is when we see how much our culture and our surroundings also affect our cooking, the way in which we automatically prepare a recipe. We cook like our mother cooks, who cooks like her mother cooked, who cooked like her mother once did, and so it is how we learn over centuries, culinary secrets, family flavors, but also habits, traditions and specific cultures of our country and region are also perpetuated. 

 

That’s why many people say that through gastronomy we know a country, and I couldn’t agree more. Eating is traveling!

 

I love trying food from other countries. In addition to being pleasantly surprised most of the time, it also inspires me a lot and opens up a huge spectrum of possibilities for me to continue creating recipes and innovating. 

 

Today’s recipe is a practical example of all this. From my passion for Asian flavors, came a very simple stir-fry that takes us to travel even without leaving home! 

THIS RECIPE IS:

SIMPLES | QUICK | INTENSE | SPICY | SUPER FLAVORFUL | RICH IN PROTEIN

 

 

For this recipe you just need a frying pan and a wooden spoon! The rest is just cutting ingredients, combining flavors, letting it cook and you’re done!

 

 

Although some ingredients are more exotic and we are not used to combining them, this does not make the recipe more difficult and much less makes it less tasty. 

 

The main protein in this recipe is Dragon SuperFoods Plant Protein Minced. A product made from pea and fava beans and with a neutral flavor, which makes it super versatile and practical to use on a daily basis. This protein comes in slightly larger pieces than the textured one, which allows for more texture to the dishes. In my opinion it is an excellent alternative to animal protein, a healthier alternative, rich in protein and that combines with the most different dishes, making them more nutritionally balanced. 

 

As I already told you, this recipe is super simple, so the only thing missing is knowing the necessary ingredients. Let’s go?
