Veggie Stir Fry with Chicken Fajitas

Veggie Stir Fry
A new week, a new day!  How are you guys?  Its been a long time since my last post. Turns out I am cooking for myself. My solitary lunches are generally salads. I know, it sounds kind of boring for some of you. Some days I find it boring too.
A simple stir fry with lots of veggies is interesting enough, I guess. Choose your favorite seasoning and add your own touch.

Red Bell Pepper - 1/2 cup
Yellow Bell Pepper - 1/2 cup
Baby Carrots - 1/2 cup
Green Peas - 1/2 cup
Green Beans - 1/2 cup
Garlic and Herb Seasoning - 1/2 tsp
Red Chili Powder - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 1 1/2 tbsp
Chicken Fajitas - 1/2 cup

How to cook Veggie Stir fry:
  • Julienne slice the bell peppers and carrots. Use as many colorful veggies you like. I also used frozen green beans and peas. Fresh tastes far better than frozen veggies. I skipped onions this time.

  • Heat oil in a cast iron or a nonstick pan. I prefer a cast iron pan for cooking at high heat. Start with the veggies which take longer to cook. Add carrots and green beans. Sauté at high heat for about a minute. Now add bell peppers and peas. Sauté for another minute.
  • Lastly, add all the seasonings and fajita chicken strips - chili powder, salt, garlic herb seasoning. Sauté for a couple more minutes and your meal is ready to enjoy.
  • I have used chicken as the protein here. Vegetarians can use grilled Paneer (Indian Cottage Cheese) cubes as well. And Tofu would be great for vegans.
  • If you like Chinese style stir fry, add soy sauce and teriyaki sauce.  or Mexican flavor, Chipotle seasoning or Taco seasoning would be perfect.
