Happy fall ya’ll! I wanted to share a quick and easy recipe I found at my local grocery store this week. I was walking down the international foods aisle and found a bag of “Thai Basil & Sweet Chili Sauce” with an easy-enough recipe on the back (Brand was Passage To India). I thought I’d give it a go and was pleased with the results! It has good, lean protein, lots of veggies, and healthy carbs. It can be a made as a one (or two, including the rice) pot meal, so prep and cleanup is pretty quick. Here are a few pictures of the process, along with a few other recipes from my week.
Thai Vegetable & Sweet Chili Stir Fry
NOTE: I’ve included a link to a great recipe below that makes its own sauce using fish & sweet pepper sauce. Since I don’t like having the extra spices/marinades on hand, I prefer to use the one-stop packaged sauce.
- In a deep pan, brown your protein 2 – 3 mins on each side. I chose chicken and cut it into cubes.
- To the protein, add chopped vegetables (zucchini, peppers, etc) to the dish. Simmer with the lid on until the veggies are tender.
- Meanwhile, cook your rice (or rice noodles, in my case).
- After veggies are tender, mix in the sauce. Meal is ready to eat!!!
